He said the county believes it would be beneficial to have a specific location in any grant application.Proponents of the park spoke during public comment at Thursday’s City Council meeting. But DeVlieger said he hoped that attendees at next week’s workshop would represent all perspectives.“All are welcome,” DeVlieger said. “I don’t want a biased point of view.”Read more about the skate park proposal.__________Sign up for OCNJ Daily’s free newsletter“Like” us on Facebooklast_img
