Guilford County school board member Ed Price pitches his idea for a skateboard park/amphitheater complex to the High Point City Council, saying his vision is “more of an economic thing than just a recreational sports center or skateboard park.”
Funding is an issue, and Price concedes that private funding won’t cover the cost. The $2 million in bond funds targeted for the last mile of the city’s greenway still lingers, and council member Chris Whitley says “it’s probably eligible” for the skateboard park because “it’s a parks and rec issue.”
Stay tuned —they want this bad.
