We’ll get our first look at design plans for a new Casey Park skate park at a meeting tonight in Auburn.
The public meeting is at 6:30 at the Equal Rights Heritage Center. Auburn City Clerk Chuck Mason says Grindline, the company working with the city on the park, will present its design, based on input at past public meetings.
The $500,000 construction cost will be split equally between a Community Development Block Grant and a grant from the state. The 8-12,000 square foot facility will replace the aging skate park currently in place. If construction gets underway this summer, the park should be finished by the end of the year.
