Officials with the skate park committee will meet with the Brazil City Parks Board Wednesday to determine if the board will move forward with a proposal to include a skatepark in the community.
Recently, the skate park committee purchased material for a park, including skatepark ramps, quarter pipes, half pipes, banks, grindboxes, ledges, rails and steps, from a skate park located in Danville, Ind., for $36,000.
The purchase was an estimated saving more than $100,000.
In a recent online poll conducted by The Brazil Times, more than 500 voted in favor of a skate park being located in Craig Park, while 489 voted for Forest Park.
During recent meetings, however, the parks board has remained split on a decision of whether to move forward with the skate park in addition to where it should be located.
Wednesday's park board meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
