Posted at 5:38 PM, Nov 18, 2020

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Skaters might soon have a place to call home in Tallahassee.

The Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency will discuss plans for a Skateable Art Park on Wednesday evening.

The park would go at the intersection of FAMU Way and Pinellas Street.

Plans are still in the early phases but show a place of honor for Florida A&M University with a "snake run," a long and winding path with a rattlesnake sculpture and seating in the middle.

"It serves as an entry space, certainly an iconic and recognizable element of the skate park," said Autumn Calder, the planning manager of the Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency. "We'll see. Tonight we're going to get the community feedback and see if the community supports it too."

Wednesday's meeting starts at 6 p.m. online and is available by clicking here. Enter the access code 670-795-789.
