Prop 68

Prop 68

What new recreational features would you like to see at Hutchins Street Square or Blakely Park? Is it an indoor recreation center?  A splash pad or better aquatics facilities?
 
Proposition 68 could make it possible. This $4 billion measure, passed by California voters last June, includes
$255 million for local park acquisition, expansion, and upgrades through a competitive grant program.
 
Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services kicks off a series of workshops and project proposal meetings in April at Hutchins Street Square and Blakely Park. Once we have a good understanding of community priorities, we’ll seek the public’s feedback on the final concepts to develop an application for funding.
 
Your voice is important in this process and will help us deliver an application that has broad community backing.  With potential funding of up to $8.5 million per project, Prop 68 presents an opportunity we can’t pass up!
 
We look forward to seeing you – and hearing your suggestions – at an upcoming workshop!
