The wrecking ball will start to swing early next month as the OVG group begins it’s effort to remodel Key Arena, which means the last time you will be able to skate at Seattle Center skatepark is October 6th.

Skate Like A Girl is also losing their home base, so they have worked hard to plan a big send-off, including:

The feasibility study that the Seattle Center hired Grindline to complete has been finalized and released to the public. It contains maps of the sites that were considered, a detailed analysis of each site, cost estimates, and a draft schedule.

In reality the team working on the project has moved well beyond site selection and is now focused on making sure the project funds are in this year’s city budget.

There was also some much needed press attention on the project this week in the Stranger which unfortunately didn’t include any voices from the advocacy side of the table, and contained some misleading statements about the project including how much money was allocated for the skatepark replacement in the deal with the Oak View Group.
