The goal of the Action Sports Park Committee is to select activities and elements appropriate and desirable for inclusion in an Action Sports Park. The group shall evaluate the virtues of single versus multiple locations for the elements while weighing the key site factors and importance for consideration in State College’s demographics. The site criteria and potential location(s) shall be evaluated to provide a recommendation to Borough Council of 2-3 sites for further consideration.
On Monday, July 17, the Borough Council approved the 2018-2022 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), which included the PK171, Action Sports Park project. To continue progression on this project, on Monday, August 7, Council appointed 14 individuals to an Ad-Hoc Action Sports Park Committee. The Ad-Hoc Action Sports Park Committee then held a public input session on Wednesday, October 11, where approximately 90 residents came to share their thoughts on the development of this project.
