New Ice Rink in Pasadena
Has anyone heard what is going on with the proposed new rink in Pasadena?
Are they actually going to build the new facility in our lifetime or are they just going through the same political crap they have to go through. I heard about this years ago but have not even heard about them breaking ground...
The current Pasadena rink right now is horrible and outdated.

Havent heard anything since over a year ago. It is supposed to be built somewhere in the area between Sierra Madre Villa-Rosemead, north of foothill. No idea whats really going to happen though. The Pasadena city councils' been really busy of late, what with the dinasaurs dying off and all.

Doesn't Pasadena have odles of folks with deep pockets? You'd think if the market & demand were really there, some of these people would get together and build the rink with private funds. Why is a rich community relying on the glacial momentum of government to get 'er done?

because it is fondly referred to as "The Peoples Republic of Pasadena"

Last time I skated was at Pasadena. The ice was terrible, fell a couple of times but then a kid cut me off, I fell backwards on my wrist and tore the joint open. It took a year to get it back. But the kid was fine.

The company I work for was going to do a bid to do the Structural Steel for this job.
I don't know if they ever did the bid or if it was postponed.
I just know they where looking at bidding on it in Dec.
