A group of Dolores and Montezuma County residents are rallying local support for a new bike pump track and skate park in Dolores. The group says the proposed bike and skate parks will fill a gap in the town's safe spaces for youth, according to data collected from the Montezuma Inspire Coalition. It will also support the county's economic development goal of increasing the length of stay in our county to promote local businesses. The Dolores Bike and Skate Park Committee has started a GoFundMe campaign and attained 501 status, allowing donations to be tax-deductible.
