The answer is simple: someone conjured delusions of grandeur that a serious injury would happen, crippling the already laughable local employment. No one in the area willing to take even the slightest risk with a simple demonstration of a few skateboarders, FFS, get a grip for once, people.

the truth to who, what, why will be exposed when the minutes to the council meeting are posted on city web site, that could be a week to ten days from now, so the facts will come out later rather than sooner, but we bet it had to do with proof of liability insurance, a pet peeve of the councilperson at large

I sincerely hope that this subject will be explored further by the Observer, and a more complete report detailing WHY this event wasn't allowed in the park as planned, and who exactly voted against it.

They are just trying to bring something to Dunkirk that it doesn't have. Thank goodness other businesses want to see Dunkirk improve.

All good comments here. The city should open their arms to anyone showing an interest IN COMING TO DUNKIRK FOR ANY REASON. Wake up city leaders your turning off people and business and you don't even know it. Fools.

Obviously there are no friends of the council members making money off of this activity and trading favors, otherwise it would have happened.

Seems like there's a lot of bad Dunkirk news today. Very negative, imo.

You would think common council would try to be as business friendly as possible. But, they are just the opposite.

Council made a mistake here, but I'm very glad to see that the Mayor actually stepped in and made arrangements for Hollyloft to still come to Dunkirk.
