Good News Tucson!
Last Updated on 04 October 2009 Written by Mike HinesSomeone once said hard work always pays off. I think that person didn't have any money. But anyway that's another story. Today Scott Laos and I met with George Kuck of Pima County Parks and Natural Resources along with several other county workers and officials to go over a temporary dirt park until the Kory Laos concrete park is built. Honestly, I didn't expect much out of the meeting since I've done nothing but wandered down dead ends wonderfully appeased the whole way. Get to the point. County workers will be hauling in dirt to the Kory Laos future site as early as tomorrow, that's right tomorrow. Not all of the dirt will be taken out there until we have a solid plan but they will be trucking it there over the next few weeks/months. They will also be donating a 500 gallon water tank with a hose so we can water the jumps. For now I'm going to be the guy with the key and the plans.... I guess. I'd love to say we're gonna have a sick set of trails right from the get go, but it doesn't work like that. We have to have some small fun stuff for the kiddies and beginners, then an intermediate section, and later down the road we'll have a pro section. But, we have to play nice for awhile and show the county that this place will work, and will help keep kids safe. That's what it is there for. I'm super excited about the project and when I know more details I'll post them up. We'll probably have building parties in the near future so stay tuned and help out if you can! Tucson is going to have a park!
One thing I want to add. We can't just go out there and start moving dirt around until a set plan is put in place. I will let everyone know when the first building party is scheduled. Also, if anyone knows the kids that are already digging on the property please let them know not to do any more digging until we get the plans together.
