Dream Big - Prop 68 Community Meetings

Prop 68

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!
