The Pro Parks Levy provides $254,000 for planning, design and portion of construction costs.
The 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund provides $747,000 for construction.
Planning: January - March 2011
Design: April 2010 - Spring 2014
Construction: Summer 2014
Completion: Fall 2014
Create a multi-use community open space for public use on the south side of University Heights Center for the Community (UHCC), including a performance area/plaza, rain gardens to improve storm water quality, landscaped areas and other amenities. The design will incorporate the farmers market use on a portion of Parks property and the removal of parking from the Parks-owned portion of the site.
This project is one of fifteen community initiated projects that received Opportunity Funds, and combines $254,000 development funds from the 2000 Pro Parks Levy and $747,000 funding from the Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund. The application received from the community is a preliminary concept and the final design may be constrained by the actual project budget. All Opportunity Fund projects will go through Park’s public involvement procedure which includes public meetings and community input. They will also go through an internal Parks process to ensure the most effective implementation.
