Things are moving fast on PMBA’s Pump Track project! On August 16, we got word that PMBA has won a $1,000 grant for pump track construction from Fox Shocks and IMBA, which will be matched dollar for dollar by PMBA member Eric Nelson!
Two days later, PMBA hosted a site visit to the proposed pump track location in Granite Creek Park with decision makers from Prescott Parks & Recreation and PMBA Board members Pat Fraher, John Shumaker, Chris Hosking, Paul Katan and Brad DeVries, and Advocacy Committee member Tom Sanio. PMBA reps answered questions about costs, construction, fences, dust suppression, weed control and other issues, and agreed in principle to sign an agreement with the city to take on maintenance of the facility.
We are putting some finishing touches on the project budget, and then the ball is in the city’s court. PMBA has an experienced designer on board for the project, so as soon as we get the nod, get ready to start shaping rollers and berms into a pumped-up experience!
