Just an update on the skate park. Special interests win again. Despite the fact that there is indeed a skate park in North Salt Lake (about a ten minute drive from anywhere in Bountiful). I have also been informed that the skate park is rarely used.
Anyhow, in yesterday’s paper the Bountiful Mayor stated: “We are committed to building the skateboard park, but we have to find the right location”.
So that’s the end of that. The city will take our money to fund someone’s project. Yet another example of government involving itself in projects outside of the proper role of government. At this point citizens can only write a final letter expressing their disapproval of the project for the city council to essentially disregard as no further public comment will be taken on the issue.
