"Built without permission, by skateboarders and later sanctioned by the city, Burnside is the preeminent example of action.... Like a magnifying glass in the sun, Burnside can witness a concentration of skill level unmatched anywhere. You can see crazy, crazy things there. Go, watch, learn, be humbled, excited and inspired. It is amazing."
- From Skate Oregon

The Bridgehead cometh

Monday, December 6
Coming up later this week, the developers which have submitted a proposal to the PDC for the Burnside Bridgehead development, will be showing thier designs to the public.

This is really the moment we've been waiting for. Now that we know what the designs are, we can now approach the powers that be with our own proposal. We will be present at every meeting concerning this project to make sure that our best interests are met. As you can see by the picture, the project looks to build right to the edge of the bridge. (If you look close enough you can see the skatepark in the top picture.) This is a pretty big concern of mine, but it won't deter us from going for as much as we can. I will let everybody know what each proposal is, and how each one would effect the park, either directly or indirectly, so check back late this week or early next week for my take. Speaking of next week, the developers will be holding the public comment meetings next week. We hope to make everyone aware of the importance of our historical skatepark and bring as many businesses and local residents into our fold as possible. Once again, I'll let you know as soon as I can.

That's it. Go skate!

Who are these guys that kill it at Burnside? The plan is to interview a different local each month to get different views from the people that skate one of the best parks in the world.
