Plans for a skate park in Forks Township are getting ready to be rolled out.
During her recreation report at Thursday's Board of Supervisors meeting, Recreation Director Rachel Sulzbach was asked about the status of the skate park by Supervisors Chairman Erik Chuss.
Sulzbach stated that a meeting with other township officials had taken place already to go over budgeting.
But a bigger meeting where talks begin to actually discuss details of the park and how it should take shape is expected to occur sometime next month, possibly Feb. 20, Sulzbach said.
"We're going to try to get more plans in place and hopefully start in the spring," she said.
Supervisor Robert Egolf asked whether Sulzbach will get input from some Forks teens who had come before the board last summer asking for a skate park.
Sulzbach responded that they would be included in the next meeting.
The skate park is included in the township's five-year parks and recreation plan. It is estimated that the skate park, which would be located near Community Park, could cost $76,000.
While officials announced recently that the skate park was included in those plans, few details have come out about it since a May Board of Supervisors meeting at which skaters appeared calling for a park of their own.
According to the five-year recreation plan, the skate park is budgeted for 2013 and 2014.
Start-up costs of $49,000 are proposed for 2013 with an additional $27,000, if necessary, in 2014, the document states.
