Our FULL Phase 2 project plan, which includes a 700m walking path, adult exercise equipment stations, a bike bumps course and a community sign, will be installed in 2016. Our final push to meet our fundraising goal went exceptionally well!
Our BIG funding news is that we were recently awarded an ADDITIONAL $42,000 IN CFEP FUNDING from the Province of Alberta in support of our Phase 2 project The Community Facility Enhancement Program (CFEP) assists communities with construction, renovation or redevelopment of community public-use facilities, thereby helping enhance the quality of life and citizen well-being in communities across Alberta.
Also, as reported in the last issue, residents recently responded with generous donations and Suzuki Charter School donated $10,000 in support of Phase 2 (see Suzuki story in this issue). Look for more “great news” funding stories in future issues!
In 2015, we received significant funding from the Province of Alberta, the City of Edmonton and the Capilano Community League. This funding, in combination with funds raised at events, and recent donations and grants, will allow us to fully complete our “Park for all Ages.” We are very excited to have reached the “fundraising finish line!”
