16 Sep Funds Awarded for New Walking Track & American Flags on Warm Springs
Two Major Grants Announced for East End Boise
Two grants have been approved for projects in Boise’s East End. In July, Mayor McLean announced the Neighborhood Investment Program grants awarded to proposals that highlight the great work of neighborhoods and the power of investments in our open spaces.
East End neighbors will soon enjoy a public walking track at Adams Elementary funded by the first major grant. The second will go toward funds for displaying American flags mounted on street lamps along Warm Springs Avenue.
Bob Bennett, board member of the East End Neighborhood Association (EENA), wrote the $60,000 track project grant request. Lori Tallboy was instrumental in securing $3,000 for the flags along Warm Springs, a project in partnership between EENA and the Warm Springs Historic District Association (WSHDA) board.
To date, the East End neighborhood has received approximately $600,000 in grants resulting in great improvements in the neighborhood. More information about neighborhood grants and how they continue to make the East End special is in the works. Timelines for the track construction are not yet in place, however we will share updates as more details are known.
Thanks to Lori Tallboy and Bob Bennett and everyone involved in these amazing projects.
