Before the park even opened I went to a Miami Township meeting and spoke up for us bmxers to be allowed to ride in the park. My argument was: "How can you build a park in the township,(that we always get threatened to get prosecuted for destruction of property in for grinding ledges, jumping stairs, etc.), then tell us we can't even ride the park?"I was told that since I don't live in Miami Township I basically have no say.IF WE'RE GONNA GET CRIMINAL CHARGES PRESSED FOR RIDING THE SKATEPARK THEN WE MIGHT AS WELL RIDE ON CITY AND PERSONAL PROPERTY.I DOUBT PRIVATE CITIZENS AND BUSINESS" WANT THEIR LEDGES, ETC TORN UP, OR GET A LAWSUIT SLAPPED ON THEM. I was featured in the Clermont Community Journal over the township meeting almost 10 years ago before the park was even built.I spend a lot of money at business' in Miami Township and grew up riding my bike , working, and doing a lot of positive things there.If you build a park for skaters then you have to let bikers in or build us our own park. If you thimk you can discriminate against us you're dead wrong.I'll take it to the supreme court . I'm unemployed (b nice to go to a free sk8 park)so I got all the time in the world. Try and tell me not to ride there, or press charges against me and see what happens.If your kid about gets run over then he needs to pay attention and get used to taking turns, skaters have crashed into me numerous times-(mostly little kids unfortunately)that's how all parks are sir. Beech Acres off Beechmont avenue has no problem with bikers and skaters co-existing.Then again, we live in Clermont county, the majority does'nt matter apparently -just money to the courts .I'm very frustrated over this and so are a lot of other people, you're causing more problems than solutions. Just let bikes in and make them have no pegs or plastic ones, Ollies in Florence spent at least 5 times more than Miami TWP. for their park and we use plastic pegs without hurting it (same surface material). WATCHOUT OR YOU GUYS ARE GONNA GET A LAWSUIT SLAPPED ON YOU! GOOD DAY!
