The Harrison Downtown Development & Revitalization Foundation received a $5,000 grant to help the Harrison BMX/Skatepark Committee build a new facility in their town. The park will be part of revitalization efforts in the historic downtown area, replacing jumps and ramps local BMX riders and skaters have constructed in a dilapidated parking lot. This grant award is contingent on the group receiving federal stimulus funding for the project. They’ve already gained significant support from the Tony Hawk Foundation, FedEx, their local McDonalds, and several individual donors.
