To the editor:
I am writing to express my support for the proposed skateboard park in Saranac Lake. I got my first skateboard about 30 years ago, and now I am teaching my son and daughter to skate. They love it, and we have a great time skating together. I hope they can be able to use the new skateboard park soon. It's a great outlet for youth in the area, and it's a nice complement for all the kids who like to snowboard in the winter. There are a lot of kids around who like to skate and bike, and this will give them a constructive outlet to hone their skills. These kids need a good place to skate. It sends the message that this town cares about them and wants to promote positive experiences for them. I hope the village can move on this quickly. This is something a lot of kids are really looking forward to, and the sooner it's completed, the more people it can serve. Please decide on your location and build this park.
