On Firmer Ground at Granite Regional Park

Greetings Race Fans!!!

We have gained quite a bit of momentum in the last few months and, although many details have to be worked out with several different community and government groups, we are confident in announcing that we are moving forward with plans to build at Granite Regional Park.

We recently had a very productive meeting with City Parks Director Jim Combs, City Councilmen Kevin McCarty, our friends at Stantec, and onsite Developer Dain Domich. In that meeting we identified the available space as the plot of land just east of the skate park. Also, we have begun to reach out to the Power Inn Alliance and looking forward to becoming a vibrant member of their community.

Thanks for your continued interest in our little project. We are super excited to be moving forward with plans to build a velodrome in Granite Regional Park. One more pic of yours truly at the gateway into our proposed velodrome site. If you are interested in following our daily social media jibber-jabber please *like* ourĀ Facebook fan page or follow us on Twitter.

Until next time…

Let’s get on track!!!

There is a great opportunity for crossover between skating track racing

This PG&E tower is at the east end of the dog and skate parking lot.

The proposed site of our velodrome is just beyond the soccer field and to the left of the PG&E tower.

The southern boarder of the proposed spot potentially has plenty of room for overflow parking

This lot is appears to be open to park users on nights and weekends
