The Foundation’s mission is to preserve the values of Alix Rice through her legacy as a longboard and skateboard enthusiast by soliciting funds to financially support the erection and preservation of a skate park as a safe, centrally located meeting place.......
BUFFALO, NY (June 2, 2015) --- The Alix Rice Peace Park Foundation heard from skateboarders and the Western New York community as it works towards fulfilling its mission of bringing a skatepark to Amherst in honor of Alix Rice. The foundation (ARPPF) hosted a community meeting on June 15th, in Skybox B at the Northtown Center, from 6:00-8:30pm featuring representation from Grindline Skateparks, which has been building parks across the country for 25 years.
“Community meetings and public input is critical to the success of any public skatepark. Our goal is to engage the public and get their buy-in on the project,” says Micah Shapiro, Lead Designer at Grindline Skateparks. “This meeting was the place for the public to provide input on what elements should be included in the skatepark."
