The idea of a local La Grande pumptrack has been around for quite awhile but nothing really took root and grew. Until now. Last year a couple of BMSTC members worked together to find the information to make it a reality.
A pump track design and construction firm has given us some ballpark cost estimates and advice on different construction scenarios. A site specific design runs $7,500; construction typically runs upwards of $200,000 depending on the amount of donated materials and labor.
The first step for us is to raise $7,500 for the site specific design. With that in hand we can pursue local donations for materials to offset construction costs. Then we can pursue grant funding for the construction phase.
