Park Block Grant GAVA Petition
GO! AUSTIN/VAMOS! AUSTIN PARK AND CREEK TEAMS
We, Adopt-a-Park and Adopt-a-Creek teams of the GO! Austin/VAMOS! Austin (GAVA) coalition, urge our Open Space, Environment, and Sustainability Committee to disburse the $1.15 million Park Block Grant equitably and based on historic need in 78744 and 78745. The needs of our 11 teams are based on safety and health.
We represent Districts 2, 3, and 5; we are Franklin Neighborhood Park, Ponciana Park, Houston School Park, Dove Springs District Park, Onion Creek Greenbelt Park, Kendra Page Park, Central Williamson Creek Greenbelt, Odom School Park, Cunningham School Park, St. Elmo School Park, “Connect Garrison Project,” and Joslin Neighborhood Park.
We believe that all parks and green spaces in Austin, regardless of the area of town, need to be equipped with the basic amenities that make them valuable assets to the community. Sign this petition if you support the GAVA Adopt-a-Park and Adopt-a-Creek teams’ call upon the Open Space, Environment, and Sustainability Committee to equitably distribute the Park Block Grant and to prioritize the needs, based on safety and health, of the GAVA Adopt-a-Park and Adopt-a-Creek teams.
