Great meeting

We had a splendid meeting tonight. This was the second planning meeting for the wilmette skatepark. A couple higlights are: 1)the location is going to be a parking lot near the recreation center, 2) it will be about 10,000 square feet, and 3) we hope to have it approved by this comming fall. It will be made of a prefabricated material(skate light or skate wave not concrete). We then designed potentials for the park and the meeting was over. Good job and thanks for comming to everybody who came. Hope to see you at the next one.
