Lions Park Gains New Storage Shed, Thanks To Local Boy Scout

Eagle Scout Project“However, with a well-developed plan and a committed group of people, anything is possible,” Skaggs elaborated.

While deciding on his project, Skaggs didn’t ask himself what he wanted to do, he asked his community what it needed. He reached out to the City of Golden Valley to see what projects would be of use. The City then provided him with a list of options, and Skaggs says he chose the toughest sounding one—building an athletic storage shed for a City park.

“I chose this specific one because I figured it would be the most difficult,” he said. “And I wanted to ensure that my Eagle Scout Project would be a complicated, yet good learning experience.”

Skaggs met with City staff to discuss what materials he would need to complete the project. From there, he created a list and a blueprint for the final product.

Knowing the project would require a lot of work, Skaggs recruited 13 fellow scouts to assist him. He even got a few adults to assist with power-related cutting, per Boy Scouts of America safety guidelines.

After the shed was built, City staff picked it up and installed it on the east side of Lions Park, Mon, Oct 25.
