WAYNESBORO, PA. - Looking at a sketch of a new skate park on Wednesday, the Washington Township Supervisors twisted the paper at various angles and admitted they weren't entirely sure what they were seeing.
Matthew Hintermyer, 15, of Waynesboro, needed no clarification, though, when he was handed the drawing.
"Lots of quarter pipes and half pipes. That's cool," Matthew said.
The supervisors this week authorized Township Manager Mike Christopher to apply for a $50,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, which could bring the park closer to reality. An anonymous donor gave the township $30,000 for a skate park several years ago.
While initially targeted for Pine Hill Regional Recreation Area on Mentzer Gap Road, Christopher said other area parks are being considered for the $109,000 worth of skateboarding equipment that could be installed in 2008.
"I wish it would be more in town," said Matthew, a sophomore at the Franklin County Career and Technology Center.
