TC Fleming (@TC13010 on Twitter) hosts a podcast called All (Dallas) Politics is Local. (My favorite Android podcast player is Pocket Casts). TC also works at The Ticket, and he recently spoke with Majed Al-Ghafry from the Dallas City Managers Office, who is in charge of the Dallas Bond Program
In the podcast, TC asks about the Bachman Lake Skatepark project, and Mr. Al-Ghafry gives a great response... very much worth a listen. The highlights are:
- The skatepark project is on a high ranking city manager's radar
- Highlights the value of skateparks for communities from his work in other cities
- $4M+ allocated to the project in the bond
- Recognizing the importance of getting community input and professional design input into the project.
