"It is exciting to see the public embrace an innovative design for the Portland Skatepark," stated Councilor Dave Marshall. "The "crop circle" design is our key to secure grant-funding in pursuit of our fundraising goal."
But picking out a design is only one step in the process. The committee is continuing its fund raising efforts, including its "Buy A Brick" program to meet the goal of $325,000. Visit the City of Portland to learn more about how to support the project.
