sale and back his plan to construct a BMX track at that location. In his address to the council, he
showed a short video of a bike race at an impressive BMX track and told the council the designer of
that track would design a track for Goldendale for just $3,000.

track was demolished in 2015, most events ended. The jumps, created in the 1980s, fell into a bit of
disrepair; the city was not responsible for maintaining them. Now, though, the city is helping rebuild.
