Skatepark in Norristown Approved by Council
I wanted to announce that it looks like things will be moving forward with a Skatepark in Norristown. I think that this will be received with tons of excitement and positive energy at all community levels – the youth, parents and businesses alike.
Lurking in the Shadows
I’ve been behind the scenes pushing for this at the local level and made small tech efforts towards it if the time ever came to contribute. I thought that we would have to resort to petitions as, over time, it felt that the Skatepark wasn’t going to happen.
But now it is, so I’m ready to Rock n’ Roll!
It’s about US
This is an “Us” project for me, much like how we at Skateboarding Saves operate – supporting Skateboarding from the lens of the streets and community.
Things are very, very early on and I plan to collect details and pass them along from my contributions to the project and to my community.
Norristown Natives Rise!
“My roots are in Philly, but my heart belongs in Norristown.”
I plan to deliver on that statement. My heart belongs within the community.
A Skatepark in Norristown allows me to do that, and I couldn’t be more excited.
With that said, I would like to again congratulate Norristown local, Jimmy Gorecki!
Jimmy is an East Coast Powerhouse when it comes to Skateboarding and is now putting time into efforts within the streetwear arena with his contributions as a Partner with Standard Issue Tees and running JSP as the Founder, as well as other collabs in the area of fashion.
What’s to Come
There will be much more to come and I may shift a lot of my time into the Skatepark efforts.
I think it will help Skateboarding Saves, as a mission, come more into fruition as an effort that is out at the street level and in the community giving our best efforts to improve those communities with what the Skateboarding Culture provides us as communities and as individuals.
As always, Peace & LOVE and I can’t wait to see a Skatepark in Norristown!
