The idea of a design and build tender was approved last year and tenders went out.
The board will proceed with obtaining a design only at this time and granted the business to New Line Skateparks of Langley. This comes after an extensive review by the Town of Oliver, OIB staff and representatives and a Parks sub committee.
Once all the funds are in place, grants received and donations complete the $180 thousand construction will go ahead based on the design work.
