I’m in the process of setting up a pre-construction meeting with Team Pain Skateparks, City of Savannah, Chatham County, Thomas and Hutton, and us. I’m shooting for either 4/11 or 4/13.
Kathryn and I are going to meet with Steve Proper (Chatham County) on Thursday (3/30) to update him on progress and discuss what happens after the skatepark is built.
On that note, I spoke with Tim Payne last week and he is scheduling us for June. I was hoping it would be a little sooner, but they have another opportunity at Woodward that lined up scheduling-wise. After the Location Gallery event, we should start really pushing material and equipment donations. If anyone has a lead on anyone that wants to donate materials, equipment, or services in line with our wish-list, then please direct them to Mrs. Jacyln Asencio at email@example.com

We are good to go on our permits. John (Thomas and Hutton) has to submit the final plans, and then we need to schedule a pre-construction meeting with the city, county, Team Pain, Thomas and Hutton, and us. I am in the process of reaching out to the deputy city marshall to reintroduce our group and set up that meeting. We can begin work after the pre-construction meeting takes place. We will need to have a volunteer work day to remove vegetation from the site and repair the silt fence. I will work out some of those details this week.
Team Pain has shrunk the design to fit within a $100K budget. The design that is in red is the design that has been submitted for our permits. The design in black is a reduce, more affordable version. Now, the good thing is that we are permitted for the whole design. So if were to raise a significant amount of money or have a large donor come through, then we could build a larger park. In Apex, NC, Team Pain was several weeks out from completing their park, and a donor came in with $100K to add more to the park. So you never know!
