SATURDAY, APRIL 8th 2019
We showed up stronger than the sum of our parts.
On April 8th we won the first major battle in the ongoing fight to Save Skateworld. Council majority voted in-opposition of the proposed sale of Skateworld property! What now? We take a step back to reflect, rest up for the fight to come, give thanks, and celebrate! This win was the result of us stayed organized, resilient, and supportive of each other.
To the Skateworld employees who answered hundreds of questions each week from customers, reassuring and educating them. There was a lot of misinformation out there and you took time out of your incredibly busy schedule to address each question and spread hope. You kept the environment positive through uncertainty. Thank you, we wouldn’t have succeeded without your support.
To the Linda Vista community, to whom Skateworld represents more than just a skating rink. The sale of this property will affect the price of your rent, the safety of your youth, and the fate of your family businesses. Thank you for creating opportunities for us skaters to learn about Linda Vista outside of Skateworld. Thank you for taking the time to educate us about your community history and on-goings. We wouldn’t have succeeded without your support.
To the attendees of our public events. Those who took time off work. Parents who let their children skip school for civic engagement. Everyone with other commitments who still managed to join in support. Everyone who donated their free time to help coordinate, set-up, or clean-up. Those who spoke out even when if it wasn’t the easiest thing to do. Everyone who rallied in the rain or braved skating outdoors for their first time. Thank you, we wouldn’t have succeeded without your support.
To civic bodies who provided valuable legal guidance, encouragement, resources, and research. Linda Vista Town Council. Bayside Community Center. Turnaround Youth. Linda Vista Planning Group. Paving Great Futures. Save Our Heritage Organization. Thank you, we wouldn’t have succeeded without your support.
To the Skateworld allies who rallied behind the scenes, providing support to your family and friends from afar. Those who have moved away, but still hold a place for Skateworld in their heart.
