“Ramona Community Planning Group unanimously voted to allocate $250,000 of Park Lands Dedication Ordinance (PLDO) funds for the proposed Ramona Skatepark.

Ramona Skatepark Champions, established as a 501(c)(3) in 2014, is working to become the maintenance entity for the skatepark and hopes to locate it on the future Ramona Intergenerational Community Campus off Main Street between 12th and 13th streets.

Tracy Engel, who has been spearheading the project, told the planning group at its July 6 meeting about their donor brick campaign to raise money for the skatepark’s maintenance bond fund, displaying one of the bricks and receiving the planning group’s support.
