Public forum set on Saranac Lake skatepark

SARANAC LAKE – A public forum will be held Thursday on a proposal to locate a skateboard park in a downtown parking lot.

The meeting, hosted by the village and representatives of the Saranac Lake SkatePark Committee, will take place at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the village offices on the second floor of the Harrietstown Town Hall, 39 Main St.

After years of review and research, and several attempts to locate the skatepark elsewhere, the village and the committee have proposed putting the facility in the village parking lot between Community Bank and Twin D Automotive, next to the Enterprise.

The village board is expected to make a final decision on the proposed location at its May 28 meeting.
