City of Alameda to Receive Urban Planning Grant From the State of California

By Erica Madison

Good news for the park and facility master plan.

In April of this year, Interim City Manager Ann Marie Gallant introduced a report on park and facility maintenance to members of the Alameda City Council. In the report she urged the Council to direct her to create a park and facility master plan.

Over 12 parks in Alameda have been identified for a major overhaul; the bad news is, there’s no money available to begin even the most crucial repairs.

The twelve parks identified as needing repair are:
• Franklin
• Godfrey
• Harringtonfield
• Krusi
• Leydecker
• Lincoln
• Little John
• Mckinley
• Shoreline
• Tillman
• Washington
• Woodstock

Fortunately, a $250,000 urban planning grant was finally awarded to the City of Alameda. This grant will be used to fund the park and facility master plan thus reducing the budget for the park master plan.

“Hopefully we can grow from this and Alameda can become a model city”, said Mayor Beverly Johnson.
