All stairs are now completed at Akahama temporary housing complex! We still need to put some finishing touch such as a solar-powered lighting on each landing, and add some landscaping around. Finally the residents can safely navigate through the complex, and perhaps have some impromptu social gatherings happening at covered landings. The final photos will be posted here soon!

In some unplanned yet seemingly choreographed display of grinding, sliding, and ollies oh my!, skateboarders from all over the region (and even some pros), spent the next 4 hours test-riding the new park. It was, to say the least, awesome.
