Please describe your involvement/interest in skateboarding (check all that apply)

I have a friend(s) who skateboard;I skated in the past but am not actively skating now

 

Do you support changing the bylaw to allow skateboarding downtown?

Yes

 

If elected, will you support the continued implementation of the Skateboard Amenities Strategy by dedicating funds to skatepark development?

Yes

I think skateparks are great recreational amenities in the community. The CKE park was a positive addition to the area and was further complemented by the Southwood Skatepark which was opened later.  As a Southwood resident and Community Association member, I was a big supporter of the addition of the skatepark to the Southwood community. It’s also good to have facilities like these so that children can use them close to home.

 

Do you support allowing skateboarding in the Cycle Track?

Yes

Do you support changing the bylaw to allow skateboarding downtown?

Unsure

It’s been a long time since I’ve thought about skateboarding downtown.  I need to inform myself of the current bylaws and what you’re suggesting could be the parameters for allowing skateboarding.  In general, I think skateboarding is a great way to get around, and is needlessly vilified.  Safety is top-of-mind, for skateboarders, pedestrians and vehicles.
