Skate park in­put

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Hind­marsh Shire Coun­cil lead­ers will seek com­mu­nity feed­back for the next stage of a new skate park at Nhill at a meet­ing next week.

Mayor Ron Is­may said since the coun­cil an­nounced the pro­ject there had been con­sid­er­able dis­cus­sion in the com­mu­nity about the pro­posed lo­ca­tion and de­sign.

“Coun­cil hosted com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tions dur­ing the prepa­ra­tion of the grant fund­ing ap­pli­ca­tion. We now in­tend to hold fur­ther con­sul­ta­tions prior to de­tailed plans be­ing es­tab­lished,” he said.

“These con­sul­ta­tions will al­low res­i­dents to ask ques­tions and to gain an un­der­stand­ing of the pro­cesses al­ready taken in de­vel­op­ing the con­cept de­signs and site se­lec­tion of the skate park.”

The coun­cil will host a com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion ses­sion at Nhill Memo­rial Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on Wed­nes­day at 7pm.

The State Gov­ern­ment has pro­vided $100,000 for the pro­ject through its 2018–2019 Com­mu­nity Sports In­fra­struc­ture Fund.

The coun­cil will con­trib­ute the bal­ance of money for the pro­ject.

Cr Is­may said the new skate part would be con­structed from con­crete and de­signed to en­cour­age and chal­lenge new and ex­pe­ri­enced skaters alike.

He said the Nhill skate park would be dif­fer­ent from sim­i­lar projects at Dim­boola and Rain­bow, pro­vid­ing three unique chal­lenges for par­tic­i­pants across the shire.

“I en­cour­age all res­i­dents of Nhill who are in­ter­ested in this skate park pro­ject to at­tend the com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion at Nhill Memo­rial Com­mu­nity Cen­tre,” he said.
