Wheres Our Bike Park

Farmington, MI

Where did all the money go that was raised for this project? Was it all a big front? Was the Bike Park real reality or just a ploy? Who collected the money and where is it? Curious residents and citizens would like some answers, we were promised this project within one year, well its way over that year.

If the park was something that the city would also be involved with then I recommend you go to the next council meeting on March 4th and ask the mayor and council the same questions during audience participation.

The money is accounted for and I believe the city has possession of it.When I donated I got an official receipt issued by the city. The reason there is no park is because the city is not involved and would not allocate funds, so they were (are) taking donations.
The whole project cost is over 200,000.00. I dont know how much has been raised, but its not a whole lot.

For those who donated cash without a reciept are out of luck. No accounting has been made for cash without receipts.

If you gave her a check I hope you made it out to the city with a memo.

If not good luck in finding out where the money went.

If you have a reciept go to who ever signed it and ask for your money back.

A check to the city without a memo or reciept it went in the general fund.

For those who have proof of your check you can request your money back from the city.

I gave cash and got a city generated receipt with my name and address printed on it, also stated what it was for. Call the treasurer if you are so concerned.

I gave the city 15 rats and told them I wanted the reward money to be donated towards the new park.

This is a bunch of crap if they dont build it. I better get a refund and the 15 rats better be in good condition or someones going to be fired.

Wow.. what a shame. First its a skatepark not a bike park. Secondly, all monies donated, generated are placed in a city account and if the park is NOT ever erected at all monies are returned to those who donated.

200,000 and fencing and cement is a tall order but having lost our cement donor due to the donation was quite hefty for the amount we would need left us in a position to not move forward early this year w/ the assistance of grants.

Most Grants require a match and in short MONEY is what we need. So if your passionate about the park and you want it open faster PLEASE help me find the money, raise the money and/or get involved. Sounds like your concerned , you want it open, and you think you can do better than I have been doing so step up and help the kids out! No ego's here lets just get it open!

I visit a skate-bmx park in the summer 4 or 5 times the most bodies I have seen in it are 3 I pass by the place many times in the summer and that is about all that ever is there.

I VOTE NO TO A SKATE PARK!

Maria, I have to say like others have indeed you are a loser. How can you possibly return the donations to the proper people.

This skate park will never happen I feel bad for the people that will never see there money again and the city just told the kids to collect money so they can use it for other things I bet the city will hope that everyone forgets about it

Exactly how much money do you think has been collected?
I believe its between 5 and 7 thousand. You will get a refund if the the project is dead, but only if you actually donated. I have my receipt.
