Next Steps:

LPNA will use the results to prioritize our funds.  We are opening up the July meeting to hear your ideas!  Ideas will be discussed further at a fall meeting and a committee will identify resources needed for each project and bring to the board for approval.

Logan Park Priorities and Ideas Meeting July 18th LPNA has almost $150,000 of funding available for programming and projects. In order to use these funds, we must follow a city outlined process to ensure robust community engagement in determining priorities. In December 2017, LPNA sent out surveys to identify neighborhood priorities. Priorities ranked as follows: Infrastructure Environment Housing Park Related Projects Arts & Culture Senior Issues The next step in the process is to hold a community meeting to present and discuss programming and project ideas. We will open up the July meeting to present findings of the survey and hear your ideas. Ideas will be reviewed and discussed further at a fall community meeting. A committee will then identify resources needed for the programs/projects and bring to the board for approval. Have an idea you want to implement? Come to our July meeting and tell us about it!
