The City of Dubuque will host a public input meeting on Aug. 31 to gather additional input on two potential locations of a proposed new skate park within Flora Park.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 31, in the Irving Elementary School Multi-purpose/Lunch Room, 2520 Pennsylvania Ave, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. The meeting will provide information to and gather input from those interested in the two locations being considered. No final decisions regarding location will be made at this meeting.  The two locations were selected as top choices based on public input meetings held in March 2016. Two sample concepts of the skate park will also be available for viewing.

Those unable to attend the meeting can provide input through an online form on the City’s website atwww.cityofdubuque.orgskatepark.

The City has committed $600,000 to the completion of the project and has also challenged a local parent and skate park user group to raise an additional $200,000, which would give the project a total budget of $800,000.  Additional background on the proposed project is available For more information, contact the City of Dubuque Leisure Services Department at 563-589-4263.
