Plans to be drawn up for skate park upgrade
Plans to upgrade the Umina Skate Park and BMX track will be drawn up with a $50,000 allocation in the Central Coast Council's 2018-19 budget.
The money will be used only for community consultation and design.
No funds have been allocated to build the new facility near Umina Oval.
Deputy mayor Cr Chris Holstein said he was excited the first stage of the redevelopment of the skate park had been approved and would occur in the next 12 months.
Cr Holstein said: "My fellow Gosford West Ward councillors, Mehrtens and Marquart, are on board with this.
"The community is on board and positive to see some of the activation we need for the young people down there.
"Once we have the detailed designs and have completed the community consultation we will be ready to look for funding opportunities and will be ready to move the project forward in the next budget," he said.
