One issue I have not been following that closely is the process for creating a skatepark in Cranford.

Mainly because I didn’t think they’d ever be able to do it.

I understand that teenagers should have a place to go. When I grew up, people inexplicably hung out at the local McDonalds…to the point that they had a security officer there in the evenings.

But I also understand that a skatepark is not something you’d like to live next to. It can be noisy, it would be lit up at night, and while most teenagers are fine, it might attract some mischief-makers that may get a “really cool idea” about your porch light fixture.

Throw in liability from injury, and I figured the skatepark is doomed.

It may be.
