Oahu is in need of a Community Safe Spot Skate Spot.

Currently, there is no safe spot skate spot in Hawaii. As a skateboarder in Hawaii I have noticed that most skateparks here are constantly covered in Graffiti. Every time I have gone to the skatepark there is always a group of people drinking alcohol and smoking pot or doing some sort of drug. Though most of these groups are welcoming and nice I feel like there is no positive influence being installed in the younger skaters or those that are newer to the sport. Most safe spot skate spots are particularly beneficial to urban communities because:

- It creates a positive experience and influences others to do the same
- Positive skaters make better next door neighbors
- Skaters who are above the influence that socialize with others are more likely to create a positive experience at the park for everyone around them and are less likely to create a nuisance during these interactions and in turn instill a positive influence on others and promote a healthy behavior among the skateboarding community.

At the Honolulu City Kamehameha Park.

- Honolulu City Kamehameha District Park is a fairly large park, however half the park goes unused most of the time and the grass is dying.
- The park is used by surrounding communities from all walks of life.

There is a huge number of skaters with in the surrounding area and Kalihi, There seems to be no intentions in the near future of having a skatepark in or around Kalihi. By barring the park from public use by skaters, they are forced to find other places to skate.

Kalihi is a progressive, evolving neighborhood with a growing number of families and people who partake in the sport of skateboarding who live in and around the kalihi area that seek an outdoor space to skate. A safe spot skate spot is a great opportunity for skaters to thrive in a positive space and skate with others that wish to promote a healthy positive influence in the skateboarding community and general community around them and socialize in a safe, gated environment thats run by a positive set of skaters that aim to promote a safe healthy environment. We ask that Mayor __________________________________________ please make a safe space with in the park for the surrounding community that skateboards thats run by the skaters for the skaters, We need a safe spot skate spot in Hawaii and wish to promote a healthy safe and positive environment for all that skate with in our community.

We, the undersigned, request a safe spot skate spot in Hawaii.
