Build Enterprise Skate Park making progress

Progress has been made in the efforts to build a skate park in Enterprise... A group called Build Enterprise Skate Park submitted a petition to the city back in February. And the city and group organizers have moved forward since that time.
"We've been working diligently in doing our homework behind the scenes to make sure that we can try to do the things that we hopefully can promise people," Mayor Boswell said.

With $20,000.000 raised and a proposed park location, organizers say it's a good start.

"They're always blasphemized for being downtown at the courthouse steps and what have you, but Enterprise Skate Park is so important to the youth, and Lyn Diefenderfer and myself, because it gives the youth a place here in the city that will be well-lit at night, it's free of charge to them, and it will be well maintained by the city,” said supporter Zack Cupp.

The proposed location for the park is the Enterprise Recreational Complex.

As manager of BamaJam Farms, Cupp knows all too well what it takes to organize and fund these projects.  And he says Mayor Kenneth Boswell is doing what he can to help.

"Money is always an issue, but he has come up with a pretty intense plan of action to allocate the land for the skate park and apply for some federal grants and aids.  So we're really excited that he's getting involved as much as he is,” Cupp said.

"We've been working diligently in doing our homework behind the scenes to make sure that we can try to do the things that we hopefully can promise people," Mayor Boswell said.

The city says it could cost up to $150,000.00.  They're now working to apply for a land, water, soil and conservation grant that would include skate park funding. 

"We're working with Polyengineering to help us put all the information together required for us to describe the project and what we hope to accomplish," said Boswell.

The deadline to apply for the grant was extended until August 1. 

And while there are no guarantees, they say the deal looks promising.
