Piru Skate Park
By Gazette Staff Writer — Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013
Piru’s Skate Park offers the town’s youth a place to engage in outdoor recreation. The Ventura County Board of Supervisors approved a total of $450,000 in loans and grants back in 2009 for the project. $200,000 in grant monies was part of an allocation of $1.9 million in federal anti-poverty funds distributed to poor communities and groups. A loan of $250,000 from the county to its redevelopment agency for the Piru area was also approved. It will be paid back over a 15-year period, at a rate of approximately $21,000 per year, from taxes collected in the Piru redevelopment zone.
