Rancho Murieta's 2007 Fourth of July celebration had all the traditional elements – a red, white and blue parade led by fire trucks, an afternoon at the lake, and fireworks filling the night sky to end the day. Did we mention the temperature topped 100?

| Filed under

Progress on three projects took center stage at the Rancho Murieta Association board meeting Tuesday – the skateboard park, the Country Club's plans for Bass Lake, and the cable system's move towards digital broadcasting.

The board approved a memorandum of understanding with Rancho Murieta Youth Enrichment Advocacy for a skateboard park. The agreement will allow the group to begin fundraising efforts to build the 10,000-square-foot skateboard park, which is estimated to cost just under $350,000. The facility would be located at Stonehouse Park. The park will be turned over to the RMA to own, operate and maintain when completed. Read more » about RMA supports effort to build skate park
