3 Community Grants Awarded in 2014

  • Palo Verde Neighborhood: Creating a neighborhood pocket park through rainwater harvesting features and planting native habitat
  • Jefferson Park Neighborhood: Capturing stormwater and reducing flooding along an urban waterway
  • Silverlake Park: Restoring native vegetation and improving wildlife habitat through improved wash management and new management strategies
