The City of Lompoc is asking for community input on plans for a new skate park at College Park.
The city will be holding five community meetings to gather ideas from the public. Four meetings will be held via Zoom, and one will be on-site at College Park with social distancing and other safety measures in place.
The first Zoom meeting took place on October 14. The remaining meetings are scheduled at the following times:
- October 22 - 7 p.m.
- November 12 - 6 p.m.
- November 23 - 6 p.m.
Information on how to join the Zoom meetings will be posted on the College Park Prop. 68 Construction Project web page before each meeting.
The on-site meeting is scheduled to take place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17. College Park is located at West College Avenue and J Street near the Lompoc Aquatic Center. Everyone over two years of age will be required to wear a face covering.
Community members are encouraged to print out the design templates and concept plan sheets available on the College Park Prop. 68 Construction Project web page and cut and paste to create their own designs, or draw their own plans.
Design sheets are also available at the Lompoc Aquatic Center and Surf Connection and will be available at the on-site meeting on October 17.
An online survey is also available.
The project would include a revamped skate park as well as a possible playground, picnic tables, and/or sports courts.
The city is applying for grant funding for the College Park project through state Proposition 68. City officials are also seeking Prop. 68 funding for park redesign projects at Pioneer and Johns-Manville parks.
Construction on a new playground and fitness area at Beattie Park funded by Prop. 68 is expected to be complete next month.
