GPNA Awards Education And Park Restoration Grants

Resident Resources
The Grant Park Neighborhood Assocation (GPNA) has awarded grants totaling $1,500 for an after school program and restoration of the park's fountains. Kingfisher Academy, a non-profit school in Grant Park, received a $1,000 grant to help fund the establishment of several after school groups, including an environmental club. A $500 grant was given to the Grant Park Conservancy to help in its efforts to meet a state match grant that will be used for a fountain restoration feasibility study. This is the first phase of a long-term project to research and restore the fountains in the park located near Cherokee and Milledge and Cherokee and Ormond.

The grants were approved by unanimous voice vote at the GPNA's February 19 general meeting.
