ACC extends skate shop’s lease
Monday, August 23, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano
A deal between Austin Community College and No Comply Skate Shop has been struck. ACC has agreed to pause its application for a demolition permit and has extended the skate shop’s lease, giving both parties time to work toward a long-term solution. “As a community college, we are committed to doing what is best for the community. We’re hopeful that this is an opportunity for a lasting partnership,” ACC spokesperson Neil Vickers said, in a statement to the press. “Our goal is to help No-Comply, and there are a lot of options we can look into. Extending the lease for No-Comply gives us all the time we need to do things right.” In a post on Instagram, No Comply celebrated the new plan, thanking supporters and ACC for its commitment to helping them find a new location, “even if it takes years.” No-Comply owner Elias Bingham thanked the college for “working with us on collaborative efforts moving forward,” adding, “I look forward to our continued work to see what we can accomplish together for our community.”
