City commissioners will be asked to deny a request by a Kansas University student who wants the university to loosen its restrictions regarding skateboarding on campus.
The city's Traffic Safety Commission unanimously recommended denial of the request after hearing from leaders in KU's public safety department that allowing skateboarding on campus could increase the risk for injury accidents or property damage.
