soundproofing a steel community skatepark
« on: February 13, 2008, 02:10:32 AM »
hi,
We've been struggling for years to get a skatepark built in our town, with very little financial assistance from the local council, about 5 years ago the D.A. was approved to build a steel skatepark on an old basketball court, 3 years later, and lots of work from 'volunteers' we had an astounding skatepark which attracted lots of regional, and national attention from skaters, here is a link to the website - http://sk8park.nimbincommunity.org.au/ . Unfortunately, this was skated before it was soundproofed, which is when the noise complaints came in. This has halted work on the park, so at present it is just sitting there rusting, the community development association has lost momentum on it, and all that is left are a few unpaid members of the community who have put there hand up to push on with it. We are now trying to come up with the best plan that we can for soundproofing it so that we can apply for funding. Please, if there is anyone out there that can tell us what we need or can do to achieve this... we need your help,
thankyou,
duncan

We can help you, but we need lots of details.
1) What is the main issue?
   a) the sound of the skateboards on the track, or
   b) The noise of the crowd.

2) Who are the main complainers?
3) Who are the main dissenters on the council?
4) Who are the main supporters?  (Council or otherwise)?

SOundproofing the track is easy...
