After an exhaustive search, the city's recreation committee has targeted three possible sites for a skateboard park, two of which are on the high-profile property known as the Village Entrance.
The first site choice is on Forest Avenue next to City Hall, where city vehicles are now parked.
The corporate yard is to be moved in coming years to allow redevelopment of the Village Entrance, a curved parcel that sweeps around Forest Avenue and Laguna Canyon Road.
The committee favored the city-owned site because of its central location and because it is near the Police Department, Recreation Director Pat Barry said. "They felt it was a safe area," he said.
The committee's second choice is at the opposite end of the Village Entrance, along Laguna Canyon Road, where city employees now park.
