* Ellensburg Skaters Seek A New Skate Park.
Ellensburg, Washington USA -- 06/19/2013
In the 17 years since the city of Ellensburg welded together steel ramps and set them up
on a concrete slab at 200 N. Pearl St., skateboarding has gone from a fringe activity to
one of the countrys fastest growing youth sports. The Ellensburg skatepark on Pearl Street
provides evidence of how popular skateboarding has become. On most days its full of local
skaters, but only because there’s nowhere better to skate, they said. Local skaters and
BMXers who arent satisfied with the old metal ramps have been meeting with city officials
about building a new skatepark. ALSO SEE: * Riders Seek New Skatepark. By E.D.R.

BMX Bike Track, Land Deal On Tuesdays Agenda
Ellensburg, Washington USA -- 09/03/2011
~~ Ellensburg City Councils Meeting At 7 p.m. On Tuesday Sept. 6th, 2011.
~~ City Council Chambers, City Hall 501 N. Anderson St. In Ellensburg, Wa.
The Ellensburg City Councils regular meeting is at 7 p.m. Tuesday because
Monday is a holiday. In addition to considering a new online bill pay agreement
with Paymentus, the Council will have a public hearing about vacating a portion
of Seventh Avenue east of Poplar Street adjacent to the old Armory building.
Vacating the land is the final element of a property exchange deal between
the city and Kittitas County. The county will get the deed to the Seventh
Avenue property at the Armory building, which is owned by the county, and
the city will get the deed for the parking lot on the corner of Sixth Avenue
and Pearl Street.
After the public hearing, the Council will consider first
reading of an ordinance vacating the Seventh Avenue property.
The Council also will review the master plan revision for Rotary Park
which includes a new BMX track. In his staff report, Parks and Recreation
Director Brad Case said having a BMX track at Rotary Park will give more
kids and adults the opportunity to use it and increase the tracks visibility,
potentially growing the sport. It also may give the Ellensburg BMX Association
an opportunity to host local, state and regional events, the report said.
The last agenda item for Tuesdays meeting is a financial status report
for the second quarter, presented by Finance Director Ade Ariwoola.
