Cameron Park stakepark closed; meeting set

 The Cameron Park Community Services District will hold a series of town hall meetings for residents to voice opinions over the recently closed skateboard park at Christa McAullife Park.

On Wednesday the CSD board voted to temporarily close the skateboard park after the “Skate Park Ad Hoc Committee,” formed last August, voiced its concerns over the park’s adverse effect on the community.

Disturbances associated with the skatepark include drug use and possession, fights, graffiti and public intoxication.

The board voted to close the park until a “long term plan can be established that will ensure that all the facilities at Christa McAullife Park can be a safe place to visit,” CSD officials said in a statement.

Residents interested in voicing opinions on the skatepark are invited to the first town hall meeting, 6 p.m. March 30 at the Cameron Park Community Center Assembly Hall.

  1. I have lived in the area for 20 yrs in the last 3 or 4, I have seen undesirables moving into the area. I assume this is result of the declining property values and the new Casino. There are not only problems in the parks but in our schools as well. I guess as a community we must embrace these problems and address them. As this seems to be the direction the country is headed! Its is just makes me sad as I have always valued what a safe and friendley community this has been in the past!
