In late fall/early winter of 2019, through connections made with skaters, bikers, scooter users, other municipalities and those in the recreation and skating community, the Town consulted Pillar Design Studios, a nationally-known action-sports design/build firm. Pillar Design Studios is recognized for creating facilities that offer distinctive site-specific designs, that are sensitive to both the client's wants and user's needs, creating aesthetically pleasing parks that all community members can enjoy.
Pillar created three concept designs (A, B and C below) for improvements to the skatepark in its current location and was set to meet with the public in March of 2020 to solicit feedback on those designs. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that meeting was cancelled and discussions were temporarily put on hold.
On June 30, 2020 a public meeting was held via Zoom where park users provided feedback and suggestions after discussing Design Concepts A-C. Based on input from this meeting, a final Design Concept has been presented by Pillar, shown below.This final design incorporates the current asphalt surface with several new features, as well as adds a new concrete section to the park. A Master Plan has also been designed showing options for future development.
