Letter to the editor: Skateboard Park brings concerns to waterpark

Why is the Skateboard Park Project being forced into the Waterpark site? Alternate sites are agreeable to all. These are conveniently located within the several acres of undeveloped land between Stevenson Blvd and the Teen Center, near the area where a skateboard park peacefully existed for years. Why is the City trying to move it a mile away into a known USGS hazard zone, adjacent to the Waterpark? A skateboard park at this Waterpark site WILL forever negatively impact the revenue generating Waterpark as well as impede senior citizens and patrons of Central Park. This move would also significantly impact residential areas, which just on its own, is very inconsiderate to residents and skateboarders alike.

The City hasn't been able to come up with even one reason how implementing a Skateboard Park at the Waterpark site benefits skateboarders or residents, but they sure are generous with other people's money! Please communicate to the mayor (bwasserman@fremont.gov or (510) 284-4011) and all of Fremont to do the right thing and not continue a choice that will waste over 2 million dollars of taxpayer money. Implementing a Skateboard Park at the Waterpark site WILL cost taxpayers a lot more than simply implementing it near its previous location where it can peacefully exist for many more years.
