Skate Essex will hold a planning session for a new permanent skate park at Montclair’s Rand Park on Tuesday, July 20. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.
On July 14, the Township Council voted unanimously to adopt a resolution supporting a permanent skate park at Rand Park. The resolution does not set aside township funds for the park, but sets a path to allow the township and Skate Essex, which has been maintaining the temporary park, to seek grant funding.
Skate Essex is looking for volunteers to join six committees, for fundraising, communications, events, skate park ambassadors, operations and community outreach.
Montclair is seeking to raise $230,000 from donors, members and grantors between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 to put us on firm footing for 2022, and continue supporting the hard work of our journalists into the new year and beyond.
