The Town of Oakville is inviting residents to a drop-in open house at Glen Abbey Community Centre on January 27 from 7 to 9 p.m. to provide input into a proposed skateboard facility at Glen Abbey Park.
“Given the high concentration of youth in the area and with its proximity to the community centre, Glen Abbey Park is an ideal option for a permanent location,” said Chris Mark, director of Parks and Open Space. “Public input is important and we welcome resident and skateboard park users’ feedback at this open house.”
A similar skateboard facility installed at Iroquois Ridge Community Centre has had little to no inappropriate youth activity. Staff believes that the reasons could be because the facility is next to a busy community centre with a full-time staff presence within the facility, and in close range of video surveillance cameras.
If you are unable to attend the public meeting in person and wish to provide comments, please email email@example.com or fax to 905-338-4188. For additional information, please call 905-845-6601, ext. 3158.
