Two electeds are against putting proposed park in the southeast corner of Nottingham Park
The potential location for the proposed skate park in Avon proved once again contentious at the most recent Avon Town Council meeting. In previous council meetings, the old fire station, at 351 Benchmark Road, was considered and rejected as a location for the skate park.
The plan as of the council meeting on Tuesday, June 27, placed the park in the southeast corner of Harry A. Nottingham Park, bordering Lake Street. When the council last discussed the park, at its April 25 meeting, a majority vote of 5-2 approved moving forward with this site, but included a plan to revisit the topic.
To move to the next step of the design process, the project, which is being supported by the Education Foundation of Eagle County, needed a letter of agreement from the Avon Town Council. The letter of agreement “would allow EFEC to get the next round of grant work for conceptual design work, so it’s to take one more step in the design process, to release those funds, and pursue the next level of design,” said Matt Pielsticker, the planning director for the town of Avon.
