It's a kids' project

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Although Rex Nelson is executive director of the McCook Economic Development Corp., he notes that he was acting on his own when he went before the McCook City Council in support of building a skatepark.

"I'm doing it on my own time, with a lot of help from my very capable wife and several other adults," Nelson said, but younger folks are taking the lead.

"It's a kids' project," he insists.

Still, the fact that someone involved in economic development thinks a skatepark would be good for the community does lend credence to the idea.

Let's hope obstacles that have prevented the idea from becoming a reality in the past are cleared away this time.

Didn't the college originally agree to replace the concrete lost at the basketball courts to another location of the city's choosing in return for the land to build the new Event Center?
