City may use federal money for skateboard park
June 6, 2002
Federal dollars earmarked for the renovation of a parking lot could be reassigned and used to build a skate park in Havre.
Mayor Bob Rice, at a Wednesday meeting of the Havre Skateboarders Association, proposed that about $43,000 of CTEP money allocated to the Sixth Avenue Ballpark parking lot be diverted to the efforts to build a skateboarding and in-line skating facility in Havre.
Through the Community Transportation Enhancement Program, the Federal Highway Administration allocates money for projects ranging from landscaping to sidewalk maintenance to historic preservation.
