Malibu residents are encouraged to give their input regarding the design of the City's Permanent Skate Park by joining the second Virtual Public Design Meeting on Tuesday, November 10, 5:00 PM and 6:00 PM.
"I hope all the young skaters and their parents can join the Virtual Public Design Meeting and give their input on the permanent skate park, which all of Malibu is so excited about," said Mayor Mikke Pierson. "We all should be proud as a City that we can provide these safe, healthy outdoor sport and recreation resources for our youth that honor Malibu's long-standing love of skateboarding."
The public will have two opportunities to participate in the Virtual Design Meeting, which will take place at 5:00 PM and 6:00 PM. Participants who wish to provide feedback during the Zoom meeting can RSVP at MalibuCity.org/SkatePark or by emailing their preferred time and the names of anyone in their household who also plan to participate to SkatePark@MalibuCity.org.
Additionally, the public can watch the meeting on the City's YouTube Channel and provide feedback by email after the meeting to SkatePark@MalibuCity.org.
The first Virtual Public Design Meeting for the Permanent Skate Park was held on September 2, 2020. You can watch the video from the meeting, including the design consultant's presentation MalibuCity.org/SkatePark.
The Community Services Department has been conducting a comprehensive public outreach process, including multiple public meetings and an online survey. The process will ensure that the design of the Permanent Skate Park will fit the needs of local skaters and the community.
Video of the Permanent Skate Park Virtual Design Meeting on September 2, 2020, is available to view on the City YouTube channel and the consultant presentation from the meeting is available online.
The City's Temporary Skate Park is open with COVID-19 safety guidelines in place. Skate sessions are available by reservation only, Monday through Friday, 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM. Make a reservation at MalibuCity.org/SkatePark.
In 2019, the City Council approved using the Crummer/Case property adjacent to Malibu Bluffs Park for a Temporary Skate Park and put out a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the design of a 12,500 square-foot Permanent Skate Park on the site.
