Choose a skatepark site

To the editor, Saranac Lake Village Board, Mayor Clyde Rabideau:

Has the Saranac Lake village board chosen a skateboard park site yet? The kids have been asking for a skateboard park for a long time. I’d like to see them have a safe, fun and legal place to skate. Let them have fun. Skateboarding lets kids grow skills, set goals and attain them, and lets them know the community cares about them. When we invest in our kids, they are more likely to grow and stay in our village.

Let’s get the site chosen so the next steps for building the skateboard park can go forward. Let’s have a new year’s resolution to make this skateboard park a reality in 2013.
