I was at the SunnySide SkatePark opening ceremony yesterday. Staff of PG Parks, County and City and several residents and skateboarders attended the event.

I thanked the County and PG park staff, Council member Lehman and the former council member Tom Dernoga, Mr Mayor and my colleague on the Council  and the staff at the planning department, Elisa and Terry Schum  for a job very well done.

The SkatePark project is a collaborative work between different agencies within our County and the City. It shows what we can achieve when we work together. This park was built in a few months, but there is a long history of community involvement in this project

I also thanked many residents who have been involved throughout this project – Donna, Kennis, Kim Lugo and many other residents and skateboarders.
