The cities of Auburn and Opelika are moving forward with plans to build a joint skate park, and the public is invited to provide input for the design at two upcoming public meetings.
The meetings will be held with two design companies to gather ideas for the new park. The first meeting will be held with American Ramp Company on June 26 at the Opelika Sportsplex, 1001 Andrews Road in Opelika. The second will be held on June 27 with Spohn Ranch Skateparks at the Harris Center, 425 Perry St. in Auburn. Both meetings will take place from 6-8 p.m., and interested parties are encouraged to attend both meetings.
Both companies will compile input from the meetings and submit a design proposal for the new park. The proposals will be posted online, and the public will have a chance to vote on their favorite design.
Those interested in a skate park are encouraged to let others that are interested know about these meetings.
