Umina workshop for skate strategy
Central Coast Council is encouraging Peninsula residents to attend a workshop in Umina to help develop a Central Coast Skate Strategy.
Mayor Cr Jane Smith said that the community would benefit from skate facilities, not just the riders.
"In addition to promoting healthy and active lifestyles, skateparks also activate and connect outdoor spaces and provide a safe purpose-built environment for riders," she said
"Skateparks also provide a boost to tourism as an attraction and through the hosting of regional and national skate events.
"I encourage the community to have a say to ensure we develop a skate strategy that meets the needs of our community now and into the future," she said.
The Umina workshop will take place from 6pm to 8pm at the Umina Surf Life Saving Club on July 31.
As well as the workshop, residents are also being encouraged to take an online survey and to participate in an online forum, both of which are available on the Your Voice Our Coast website until August 9.
The strategy is expected to inform future development, upgrade and maintenance of council skate facilities, including at Umina.
A specialist consultant will develop the "evidence-based skate strategy", incorporating investigation and analysis of existing skateparks, current trends, demographic data, existing and related strategies and the feedback and opinions gathered from community and stakeholders.
