Bike and skate group meets with commission

July 28, 2007|By TRISH RUDDER

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Members of the Berkeley Springs Bike and Skate Group met Friday with the Morgan County Commission at the one-acre site that the commission has offered for a skate park.

The county-owned property is across from the ball field on U.S. 522 South, about six miles from Berkeley Springs.

Jennie McBee, the group's spokesperson, said the site is a good possibility, but the property needs a lot of grading.

Commission President Glen Stotler proposed another possible site on the other side of U.S. 522, McBee said.

That site is between two ball fields and next to a pavilion, McBee said. It is less than an acre, and Nate Wessel, an international skate park designer hired to design the park, would have to look at it. The advantage is the facilities already are in place, she said.

McBee said the group also is considering another piece of property that is not owned by the county.

Matt Hovermale, a member of the group, said members will meet and discuss all of the options before making a decision.
