Agenda Item - 2021-10-19 - Number 4. - Public Comment - Jason Murray From: Jason Murray To: Council Distribution;Buck.Joe Subject: Rassekh Park-Skate Park Date: Tuesday,October 19,2021 8:53:55 PM Attachments: Email P.odf Joe and fellow Council Members, Thank you again for your time, efforts and enthusiasm for community feedback. I'm elated to hear your collective support for making the skatepark a bigger priority in the development and design of Rassekh Park. I've skated for over 40 years, and love enjoying it with my two boys. The now, very real possibility of having a world class skatepark in Lake Oswego is amazing. As I mentioned in addressing you this afternoon, I'd love to help in way I can: spearheading community involvement/feedback, connecting the parks design team with skate design/ build veterans, or anything else that makes this goal a reality. Portland is home to some of the most experienced builders/skaters on the planet so having that resource in our back yard will be extremely beneficial to our success. The combination of available SDR funds and the option to move the basketball/pickle ball courts across the road really expands the opportunity before us to create a skate park that can be enjoyed for years to come by all types of skaters, scooters and BMX enthusiasts. I've already reached out to Bruce and Ivan to offer support but please advise on how I can best serve the city and design/planning as you move forward with next steps.
