Scooter's could be banned at Mountain Dew skatepark

LEWISTON, ID - The Lewiston City Council proposed a ban on scooters at the local skatepark that has some citizens concerned.

Many concerned park-goers expressed their concern about the ban, but it's a move the City is considering because the damage the park has sustained is substantial. Parks and Recreation Director Tim Barker said when the park was designed, only the use of skateboards and bikes were taken into account. However, there are several options the City can pursue.

"Options for expansion, potentially to this park, that would be more of a beginners or scooter level type facility to be able to accommodate those," said Barker.

Barker said they're working with local recreators to include their input on what's the next best move. The next hearing for the potential scooter ban is August 5th.
