THE incomplete BMX track at Anzac Park could be levelled out pending discussion at Thursday night's Orange City Council meeting.
After councillors asked for a report on the facility in June, staff have recommended to demolish the track and level the leftover soil so the area can return to green space.
The track has been closed for the past four months.
Staf asked dsb Landscape Architects, which drew up the Anzac Park masterplan, for ideas on how the BMX track could be used if the facility was removed and it was suggested to expand the skate park and use the remainder for car parking and a playground.
Demolition costs varied - removing the soil completely would take up to 600 truckloads and $25,000 to remove.
By comparison, levelling the soil would cost $10,000.
Councillor Russell Turner, who has been asking for action on the track for two years, said it was a good alternative.
"[When it was built], they cut a lot out of the embankment so one of my questions was going to be whether we replace it as best as possible or spread it out," he said.
"That's the cheapest option and it's not being used at the moment.
"My concern is it's an eyesore for Dudley [Private Hospital], the houses above it and the people visiting town for various sporting events."
The last time Orange BMX Club addressed the council on the issue, $20,000 was the shortfall quoted to complete the concrete gates.
However, Cr Turner did not think completion was still an option.
"We've tried to get a response back from the club and they're not responding but if we bring it up to what they wanted, the question is whether the ongoing use would warrant the cost to get it maintained," he said.
If levelled, the site would be spray-seeded until drought conditions eased.
