SALISBURY – The city moved forward this week in applying for state funding to complete Salisbury’s new skate park.
Under the City Council’s consent agenda this week was a resolution to approve a Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Community Parks and Playgrounds grant application for funding the second phase of the Salisbury Skate Park that is located in the 900 Block of South Park Drive.
Community Development Director Deborah Stam reported the city will be submitting a Community Parks & Playgrounds (CP&P) funding application to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for the Fiscal Year 2016 funding round. This application is for $383,000 in CP&P funding for Phase 2 of the Salisbury Skate Park project.
Stam furthered, the Salisbury Skate Park project has been broken into two phases in order to make it affordable. Phase 1 has been funded through CP&P for approximately 6,000 square feet, and Phase 2 will be another 7,400 square feet.
