for today's groundbreaking.
The skate park will be located immediately to the north of the baseball diamonds in the Northeast Regional Park. According to the site plan, the park will have three to four distinguishable skating areas, including dynamic bowls, swimming-pool style areas, a curving half-pipe, and an area filled with stairs and railings. Officials hope to have the skate park completed by January 2014.

The $1.436 million contract has been awarded to Medlock Commercial Contractors, LLC, of El Paso. The contract includes construction of two parking areas that will serve the skate park. Medlock has previously worked on Bulldog Championship Park in Socorro and the Vinton Municipal Park, according to its website (www.medlockcommercial.com/).
