Answer to councillor gives no further detail on skate park
Three months after Cr Kyle MacGregor requested an update on the Umina Skate Park, he has received an answer that provides no information not already in the public domain.
A concept design for the upgraded skate park was now being drawn up, he was told at the August 26 meeting.
Once the final design was received, council would call for tenders for a detailed design and construction.
"The community will be provided further opportunities for feedback and discussion to inform key elements in the detailed design phase,'' acting manager Ms Karen Tucker wrote.
Cr MacGregor's question was asked at the May 27 meeting.
Umina Community Group updated supporters on its Facebook page in June with the same information, along with a timeline for construction and the grand opening some time in the first half of next year.
The group last year presented council and all local politicians with a 100-page discussion paper supporting the need for a new skate park.
Bendigo Bank donated $50,000 and Ettalong Bowling Club $10,000 to start the project.
Council spent $50,000 on the concept design and the Federal Government announced before the election that it would provide $8.25m to rebuild the park, the access road and sports clubs around the park.
