Response to concerns raised

As you probably know, the first skateparks in a city-wide network of parks are being built. Many have expressed surprise due to the fact these parks are not being built by a specialty skatepark contractor, as many of the skateparks in towns around Calgary have been.

Some of our membership have even expressed worry regarding things like the finish, coping, transition radii, and other such details which are crucial to a successful modern skatepark. CASE has been working closely with the skatepark designer and consultant, Van der Zalm & Associates to ensure these parks are to specification, as outlined in the designs.

“Van der Zalm & Associates understands the exacting nature of skate terrain and will be working with the contractor to ensure the quality finish, and shaping expectations are met. We have a comprehensive drawing package and related specifications for concrete and have made the contractor aware of how we will be inspecting the project. We understand the concern about a skatepark contractor without a strong record in skatepark construction. We have voiced this concern to all parties involved and have been transparent about how we will approach the review of concrete work. VDZ+A will have senior staff with skateboard park construction review experience on site and will be requiring test panels for transition work to be constructed for review and approval before actual work begins within the bowl.”

Every year CASE invites all of our members, as well as everyone else in the Calgary skateboarding community and those who support skateboarding, to our Annual General Meeting (AGM). Our AGM is an opportunity for CASE to share what we have accomplished, what we are working on, and what we have planned. It will also be a chance for us to answer your questions, and hear your ideas and suggestions about what we can do for skateboarding in Calgary in the coming year.

The City will be constructing the first 3 new skateparks this year, and a City representative will be at the meeting to give an update into the Skatepark Strategy, and answer questions about it.

With the growing number of skateparks in Calgary, CASE needs more people to get involved in a variety of roles so we can do more for Calgary skateboarders. If you may be interested in working with CASE in some way, come to the meeting and find out how you can help. Whatever time and effort you can give, a little or a lot, it will help push skateboarding forward in Calgary

If you have questions, comments, or need more information before the meeting please reply to this email or contact CASE through our website.

See YOU May 13th!
