Notice of funding shift, to support Fuller Park shade structures

Tangletown Neighborhood Association plans to provide funding support to allow shade structures to be added to Fuller Park’s pool area. To make this successful, funding must be reallocated within Tangletown’s Neighborhood Revitalization Program funding source; a shift which requires public notice prior to board approval. This funding shift will be formally decided upon at Tangletown’s April 21, 2014 board meeting. See below for details on the reallocation, and contact for more information.

Reallocate NRP Phase II funds:

Housing – Strategy A.1.5.1 – Housing Coordinator ($5,000)
Crime and Safety – Strategy E.1.1.2 – Crime and Safety Coordinator ($10,000)

Parks and Public Spaces – Strategy C.1.1.1 – Fuller Park Improvements ($15,000)

This modification will redirect currently underutilized funds to a higher neighborhood priority – adding shade structures at Fuller Park.
