Today I was door-knocking and met a young man who was enthusiastic about COPE’s promise to build more skateboard and BMX Parks.  Although there isn’t any specific funding for these in the 2009-2011 Capital Plan that we vote on in the Nov 15 referendum, COPE commissioners will work with skateboarders (including Vision Vancouver candidate Sarah Blyth) and BMX bikers to identify funding and locations for new skateboard and BMX parks or facilities.

The young man–who lives in the Clark Drive area–was also pleased that COPE wants to keep an outdoor pool at the current site in Mount Pleasant Community Park.  This shows that there is community support for this beyond the immediate vicinity of the pool.
