LUNENBURG – Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early, Jr. is proud to support the Lunenburg Skate Park Project as they aim to provide a safe recreational space for all.
“The Lunenburg Skate Park Project will bring together all ages and skill levels, creating a strong sense of community,” said Mr. Early. “Children will learn how to face challenges and form positive decision-making skills that last a lifetime.”
Senator John J. Cronin, Lunenburg’s Chief Administrative and Financial Officer Heather Lemieux and Lunenburg Parks Commission Representative Chris Sullivan attended the Oct. 3 check presentation, showing their support for Northern Worcester County and continuing their dedication to long-term growth and value for the community. Also in attendance were members of the founding team, Mason Whitcomb, Aidan Swift, Aidan Moore and Griffin Caiozzo.
“As we head into the final fundraising sprint – DA Early’s continued support for this project means more than ever as we are myopically focused on closing the remaining $35,000 funding gap,” said Anthony Caiozzo, the Lunenburg Skate Park non-profit’s president. “We’ve just recently begun the civil engineering process and expect to have a final design/bill of materials as well as construction documents complete within the next 90 days. Reaching that milestone will provide us with a shovel-ready project that will enable us to commence – and ideally complete – construction of this facility before the team graduates next spring.”
As of 2022, the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office has provided $16,000 to the Lunenburg Skate Park Project and more than $1.5 million in county-wide prevention program funding since 2007. These funds were made possible through the drug forfeiture reinvestment program, using money seized from drug crimes to provide funds for community initiatives in Worcester County as a crime prevention and intervention tool.
The Lunenburg Skate Park is a 501(c)3 non-profit based in Lunenburg. Founded in 2017, the Lunenburg Skate Park works to further funding and construction efforts for a permanent, concrete, wheeled-enthusiast facility on town land.
