I grew up in Danville and had an enormous amount of fun doing so. The problem is that about 90 percent of it consisted of loitering and trespassing due to the lack of any decent places for youths to go.
The money is there, $50,000 to be exact, and the people on the city commission can't even figure out a place to put it. Where is the mayor in a situation like this? I bet if his son skated he would motivate the commission to find a spot.
Come on Danville, build these kids a skate park and quit your bickering over where to put it.
