Chino Valley Review


Local skateboarders and bicyclists who will use the future Chino Valley Skate Park, and other interested groups, can attend a Design Workshop at 6 p.m. April 30.

The workshop will be at the Chino Valley Community Center at 1527 N. Road 1 East, just south of the swimming pool building. A workshop flier reads, "Dream it... Design it... Ride it!"

People can see two computer-generated skate park designs by California Skate Parks, talk with designers and with Chris Bartels of the Chino Valley Parks and Recreation Department. Bartels hopes to hear from many "riders" at the workshop.

Likewise, the designers, California Skate Parks, want to hear public comment and preferences on the concepts.

A new skate park will replace the old one that became unsafe and was closed by the Town. The new one will be built in the same location plus additional footage at the Community Center Park. Both options are linear, around the existing park facilities, along a dirt path and on a vacant area behind the park's maintenance yard.

Both options show skating features, such as handrails, ramps, stairs, partial bowls and others. One option has landscaping included inside the skate park layout.

In addition, both options are designed for beginning and intermediate users, not advanced users.

The Town has no budget to build the skate park, but rather are counting on in-kind donations of materials and certain types of labor from the community, along with some Town staff labor.

For more information, contact Bartels at 636-7140, ext. 1233, or visit the Town's website at www.chinoaz.net.

The question is not where skating originated or how it was done 60 years ago but what is the town going to do about the safety and possible fallout from an injury from an individual not wearing protective equipment. I find it ironic too that on May 6th you said all we have to do is post a sign, then on May 11th you flip flop and point out that there are no signs on roads. Which avenue are you going to go down next ? Thankfully Arizona is not california, sounds like you'd be happier living there.Why is it you moved from such a place that you seem to portray as so great?

Again MIKE B, the conversation is not about toughness. It's about liability. Try to keep up MIKE B

BY THE WAY DON'T USE MY SCREEN NAME WITHOUT MY PERMISSION.
UNLESS YOU WERE BORN IN THE 1940'S AND GREW UP IN SOUTHEREN CA. IN THE 1950'S & 1960'S YOU DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT SURFING OR SKATE BOARDING. THAT'S WHERE IT'S POPULARITY WENT WILD.
WE ALSO HAD ATTORNEYS THAT DID NOT CHASE AMBULANCES.
DID YOU EVER SEE A SIGN ( CAUTION, DRIVING ON THIS ROAD COULD BE HAZARDIOUS TO YOUR HEALTH ) ?

Judging from the form and wording of your comment, perhaps you should have used some protective gear earlier in life. The comment is not about toughness of riders but the legal ramifications from a lawsuit towards the town.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS POST A SIGN,
( SKATE AT YOUR OWN RISK. NO LIFE GUARD ON DUTY )
MY GENERATION WAS THE GROUND FLOOR OF SKATE BOARDING. WE DIDN'T USE ALL THESE BODY PROTECTION THINGS. IF YOU SKINNED YOUR KNEE OR ELBOW YOU WOULD GO HOME MOM WOULD BANDAGE IT AND YOUR BACK OUT ON THE STREET. WE DIDN'T LIVE IN A BUBBLE.

Is the town going to require the use of protective equipment such as helmets for anyone who uses tis public facility? The youth in the picture has none, not the greatest endorsement.
