Skateboarding downtown still prohibited

With the new downtown core nearly finished, city officials are reminding skateboarders that skateboarding downtown is still prohibited.

Mayor Jim Restucci at this past Monday’s city council meeting said the city should act to create a skate park closer to downtown to give skateboarders a place to go. He noted that many do not have transportation to Sunnyview Park, which is located out of the city limits and features the area’s only skate park.

Police Chief Al Escalera said officers will be issuing warnings to skateboarders found in the downtown core.
