Neighborhood Park and Street Fund now accepting proposals

The City of Seattle is now accepting proposals to the Neighborhood Park and Street Fund (NPSF) which works to support improvements to neighborhood parks and streets that are proposed by the community.

The NPSF can be used for projects valued up to $90,000 that will improve parks and streets for your local community. Examples of park projects include playground improvements, trail upgrades, sport court resurfacing, natural area renovations, and accessibility improvements. Examples of street projects include crossing improvements such as marked crosswalks, curb ramps, and pedestrian countdown signals; and traffic calming, such as traffic circles and speed feedback signs.

The deadline for applications is February 3, 2014 and awarded projects will be completed in 2015. Any individual, neighborhood group, or business group is eligible and encouraged to apply.
