        Ever since the early days of its construction, the Skatepark of Plymouth has had financial support from the Plymouth Rotary Club and its Foundation. Since 2011, the Plymouth Rotary has donated $7,000 to the cause -- realizing that the Skatepark is a great addition to our community and a healthy outlet for the energies of our local youth. Not only does this project make Plymouth a better place to live, but it offers visitors a destination and another great reason to travel to our area.

       Now, in the fourth year of Skatepark development, Michael Currier is seeking further support from community businesses to complete the project, and Alex Ray has stepped up, once again, as a community leader. Currier is applying to the Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA) for tax credits to complete the construction of the Skatepark. If his application is approved, local businesses or individuals may choose to have their taxes directed to the Skatepark to support its completion. Alex Ray, Founder and President of the Common Man Family, has promised to purchase an immediate $25,000 in tax credits. Upon reaching the goal of $100,000 in sold or committed credits, the Common Man plans to match dollar for dollar the next $35,000 in sold or committed credits -- effectively bringing Alex Ray’s contribution to $60,000.

       The hope is that Alex Ray’s lead gift will inspire other businesses to direct their tax dollars back to the community through similar tax credit purchases. Michael Currier is seeking pledges now as he completes his application to the CDFA. To make a pledge or learn more about this idea, please contact Currier at: mcurrier2005@gmail.com
