In response to the letter “Skating Safely” from Oct. 2:
In the Whole Foods and The Park project, we have chosen to include a Shane’s Inspiration playground that accommodates special needs kids, as well as a Community Education Garden for the schools in Malibu, instead of a skateboard park.
When the skatepark lease was over, we donated $25,000 for its relocation. Since you both are on the city’s Skatepark Ad HOC Committee, you know the new facility is now in the hands of the City and your group, who have been working on several alternatives. I join you in hoping the community unites behind a specific site.
