Mayor wants a Chemainus skate park from school-board Santas

A Chemainus skate park is on Mayor Jon Lefebure's Christmas list.

By next month, he hopes to hear a positive answer from the school board about using land at the former Chemainus elementary for a long-awaited skate- and bike park.

While Mural Town boarders and bikers have visions of half pipes riding in their heads, the mayor realizes the skate park could be a lump of coal for nearby neighbours.

"We'll work hard to make sure neighbours aren't impacted," he said, promising noise and privacy buffering — perhaps landscaping — and locating the park away from homes.

The property might also sport a dog park, and a youth centre, Lefebure said after recent rallies demanding a Chemainus skate park be built, someplace.
