Ferndale Seeks Input on Design of New Skatepark with Public Meeting Jan. 26th

Calling all skaters and riders, the City of Ferndale wants to hear from you! The City is holding a live webinar to help design Metalworks Skatepark on January 26th at 6PM to gather input on what features would work best for a skate/bmx/scooter facility in Ferndale.

New Line Skateparks, an internationally renowned skatepark design and construction team, will be collecting the feedback and transforming it into a plan so that construction can get underway later this year.

“How do we make an awesome skatepark for Ferndale? Simple. We ask the people who are going to use it and have the best designers make it happen,” said Mayor Greg Hansen. “This is your opportunity to tell us what would work and what wouldn’t.”

Participants can access the meeting over Zoom at www.tinyurl.com/MetalworksMeeting1

There will also be an online survey available from Jan. 26th-Feb 11th as another opportunity to provide input.  It will go live immediately after the meeting and be available at www.tinyurl.com/MetalworksSkatepark

In looking at the developing forecast for heavy rains and a rising river, Mayor Greg Hansen issued a statement today, “City staff and Public Works crews are on standby today and in the days to follow with all available resources ready to respond if river levels make this necessary.  I encourage individuals to also do what they can to prepare themselves and to help their neighbors.  If you are within a flood area, be prepared to secure your vehicles and belongings. Ferndale residents can also help by cleaning leaves and other debris from around the storm drains near your home.  Please check on your neighbors.  Watch for road closure notices before leaving home, and be patient with each other as this weather evolves.  We will continue to monitor this situation and will provide updates as they become available through our website and Facebook page.”
