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

I have a friend(s) who skateboard, I don’t skateboard, but I am a fan of skateboarding

 

Do you support changing the bylaw to allow skateboarding downtown?

Yes

I find the vast majority of the skateboard community, like any other, is very respectful. Signs posted requesting no skateboarding on benches or other infrastructure will likely be enough to protect from potential damage. If we allow skateboarders to utilize the bike lanes, we can also mitigate concerns of interaction with slower moving pedestrians. Skateboarding is a mode of transportation like cycling and I support choices in transportation.

 

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

Yes

 

Do you support allowing skateboarding in the Cycle Track?

Yes

I’ve never skated or been involved in skateboarding

 

Do you support changing the bylaw to allow skateboarding downtown?

Unsure

I’d need to better understand how this might impact other modes of transportation, especially for pedestrians.

 

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

Yes

Future skatepark development must include community input. The Edgemont Community had valid noise, design and traffic concerns about a proposed skatepark. The Huntington Hills skatepark has been a huge success. Let’s build them where they will work.

Do you support allowing skateboarding in the Cycle Track?

Unsure

I’m always interested in making good use of existing infrastructure, but I’d have to hear from the cycling community first.
