Lompoc officials seeking community input on new skate park design

Lompoc officials seeking community input on new skate park design

College Park redesign

Lompoc city officials are seeking community input on plans to design and construct a new skate park and community area at College Park in Lompoc.

Lompoc city officials are seeking public input as they begin the application process for Proposition 68 state grant funding to design and construct a new skate park and community area at College Park, replacing the current 10,000-square-foot skate park that opened in 2000. 

Community members are invited to participate in a series of meetings through November, including a Zoom meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22. Additional Zoom meetings are scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22; 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12; and 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 23. 

City staff also is encouraging locals to take the online project survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/KDXWX3T, as well as submit personalized park designs — created either by free hand or guided by printable design templates available on the College Park Prop. 68 Construction Project link located on the city website, www.cityoflompoc.com.

Preprinted design sheets also will be made available to the public for pickup at the Lompoc Aquatic Center and Surf Connection.

Completed design sheets can either be shown to project designers and city staff during scheduled community meetings, according to a city spokeswoman, or can be turned in at the Lompoc Aquatic Center or Surf Connection.

Proposition 68, the Parks and Water Bond Act of 2018, has funded the construction of Lompoc's new playground and fitness area at Beattie Park.

The City of Lompoc announced on Saturday that outdoor playground use is now permitted by the issuance of an Oct. 2 Santa Barbara County Health Officer order, and that once COVID-19 informational signage is posted and fencing is removed, playgrounds are set to reopen as late at Friday.
