Mini-Grant Projects 2018-2019
Norton Vista neighborhood association – Enhancement & Neighborhood Revitalization
Norton Vista Neighborhood Association was established to bring service and add value to the Sunnyslope community. Through funding and volunteer support, a mural, message boards, and curb paintings assisted in enhancing and revitalizing the neighborhood. The large core group of neighborhood volunteers and increasing attendance at association meetings show that this project has renewed hope within the community.
Grant Park - Community Garden
Built and installed a pass-through gate on the east fence with a garden theme. This gate makes the garden more accessible to adults and children. Previously, there was only a heavy rolling gate that was hard to open.
Community Tree Plantings
Trees are an important tool in mitigating the urban heat island effect by providing shade, air quality improvements and walkability. The two tree plantings strengthened partnerships between multiple neighborhoods and the City in supporting the City's Tree and Shade Master Plan.
