The Livingston Skate Park Committee announced that they have decided to add a 16 foot Mini-Ramp to Livingston’s first municipal skating facility which is currently under construction. The original bid included a two part proposal. Initially the plan was to include a “Bowl” in the project, but the bid was accepted for the construction of the main park because the committee did not have the necessary funding to include the bowl. The Skate Park Committee has since decided that a Mini-Ramp would be much more desirable than a Bowl.
