Supervisors Dimitrijevic and Haas Announce More Than $400,000 in Parks Improvements in Bay View Neighborhood
County Board Legislation Delivers $5 Million to Revitalize Our County Parks
Facing hundreds of millions of dollars in deferred maintenance, the County Board has adopted legislation which invests millions back into our parks system. More than half a million dollars will fund system-wide upgrades to restrooms, parking lots and parks structures county-wide.
“This additional funding continues the renaissance in Bay View and builds upon the work taking place to reopen the beach, adding to the success of the new South Shore Terrace. It expands public access to one of our lakefront gems. $300,000 will go directly to the South Shore Pavilion for badly needed repairs such as tuck-pointing, window upgrades and painting,” said Supervisor Marina Dimitrijevic.
“Humboldt Park pavilion will receive $100,000 for masonry, plumbing, and painting from this positive work of the County Board. Our leadership demonstrates real results on reversing the downward spiral of deferred maintenance in our parks,” said Supervisor Jason Haas.
This infusion of funds will inject new life into our public spaces for everyone to enjoy, Dimitrijevic said.
“We are excited to deliver county funds to the Bay View neighborhood we represent, which will pay off for future generations,” Haas said.
