Two opportunities to link up with Safe Neighborhood Parks in LA

With 16 days to go until Election Day, we want to extend two opportunities to Los Angeles voters to learn more about Proposition P, Safe Neighborhood Parks Measure, on the November ballot.

In 1992, Los Angeles County voters approved the initial Safe Neighborhood Parks Measure, which provides approximately $54 million per year for neighborhood parks. Over the past 22 years, the Safe Neighborhoods Park Measure has funded almost 1500 projects, including the creation of parks and youth centers in disadvantaged neighborhoods, repairs and upgrades to existing parks, clean water projects, and gang prevention programs to employ and engage at-risk youth.

With this measure set to expire in 2015, Proposition P is designed to protect funding for parks and open spaces in Los Angeles County.

To learn more about the legacy of the Safe Neighborhood Parks Measure and how  Proposition P is structured to fund parks and recreation projects in park-poor areas, join a webinar sponsored by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation this Tuesday or attend an Informational Workshop this Friday!
