Skate Spot Kickoff Design Meeting Held
As part of the redevelopment of the former Masland factory site, the owner of the property, Carlisle Auto Industries, has conveyed Lot A and Lot D to Carlisle Borough for the purpose of public recreation. The Borough has also received funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to develop these lots into park space. Lot D will be a more traditional park, while Lot A will be developed into a skate spot.
Initial public outreach on the skate spot began in late July through Engage Carlisle, the Borough’s citizen engagement platform. Over 130 people responded to a survey about what features they wanted to see incorporated into the skate spot. Several local skateboarders also attended Carlisle Parks and Recreation Board Meeting and Carlisle Borough Council Meetings to share their thoughts on the project. Members of the Parks and Recreation Board also canvassed the Fairground Avenue neighborhood, receiving input from those living adjacent to the proposed site.
