City considering $98,500 in CDBG funds for Kranz Park improvements
During their Oct. 18 meeting, City Commissioner will consider a request for $98,500 of Community Development Block Grant funds for Kranz Park improvements.
The city Park and Recreation Department requested the funds for geotech analysis, sidewalks, an ADA curbcut for accessibility; and installation of a pavilion, play structure and tables in Kranz Park.
The project is eligible for CDBG funds, which are through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, since the park is in a low to moderate income area and falls within the public facilities and improvements category, according to staff.
Using CDBG funds for the project leaves other park district and general funds available for other projects, according to staff.
