Or Maybe Tear Down the Skatepark and Put Up a Charter School

Marcia Green:

CUMBERLAND - Mayor Daniel McKee readily agrees that it was his idea to put the 1.3-acre Currier Playground up for sale this year.

The land at 52 Broad St. is too valuable not to develop for commercial use, he told The Breeze in a story last month. It was listed with broker Tom McNulty for $250,000.

Tonight, May 30 at 7 p.m., the Planning Board will see its first proposal for the site - a new, tax-exempt elementary school building by the Blackstone Valley Prep Mayoral Academy that McKee founded.

Up for their review is a 40,000-square-foot, two-story school building where the skateboard ramps are currently located. Parking is provided at the rear of the lot and on the northern side, backing up to Titus Street properties.

It is a shitty little skatepark anyhow.
