The Republic Skatepark reports their good news of being ranked second by the Recreation and Conservation Office among proposed projects to receive a Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program Local Parks grant. Read the full post here.


“Ranking second is an incredibly strong showing for a small rural community like ours. The grant process is very competitive and the skate park went up against big city projects with big budgets and professional staff,”” Bob Whittaker said. “Our skate park initiative was 100 percent driven by the public with Committee Chair Anthony Houston at the helm. We had 63 letters of support and that was a new record in the Local Parks category!”
