The Villager: Board Endorses Skate Park

Brenda and Chris Perks were at the Village Board meeting on Monday to discuss the skateboard park they would like to see created in Ellicottville. Trevor Staples accompanied them from the Tony Hawk Foundation, a group that supplies grants and helps communities install skateboard parks throughout the country. Mr. Staples said his group has matching grants available for up to $250,000 and said most concrete skateparks cost $5,000 per square foot to build.
