Proponents for the Skatepark in Los Gatos laid out a plan to build, fund and maintain one on Miles Avenue in downtown Los Gatos, but when it went before the voting public in Measure D, was not passed. In fact, Measure D, “the skatepark initiative”,  was defeated by a 2 to 1 margin.

But does that mean that Los Gatans don’t want a skatepark at all?

Or did they just not want the particulars in Measure D?

This is an important question because there’s money being held by the town for the skatepark.

If the town considers the skatepark a closed issue, I believe it could use those monies for other things, but I hope not. There’s a lot of residual upset swirling around the skatepark vote, and I would maintain that although Measure D was defeated, the Los Gatos voters remain open to making a skatepark part of the town’s services.
