Turlock Now: Skate park move to be discussed

Posted by Marijke Rowland on July 8, 2013 

— Skaters and bikers of Turlock, it’s your time to speak up.

On Wednesday the Turlock Parks, Recreation and Community Programs Commission will meet to discuss the proposed move of the Brandon Koch Memorial Skate Park to Donnelly Park. 

The move from its current Starr Avenue home comes as the city is in talks to sell the property to the Turlock Irrigation District. An ad-hoc committee to oversee the design of the new park will also be formed at the meeting. The committee will be made up of a commissioner, city staff member and up to 10 community members. 

The commission will meet at 6 p.m. at City Hall. Public comment is welcomed and encouraged.

Modesto Bee is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
