GVRD Project:
GVRD began work in March 2014, tasked with improving 12 parks and granted $371,500. GVRD agreed to contribute at least $159,000 of in-kind contributions for labor and management, so that all of the $371,500 could be used for materials.

GVRD 100% of its funding by December 31, 2015, completing not only all 12 original sites in the contract, but came in considerably under budget and was able to increase funding for a new playground at North Vallejo Park adding a 13th site for park improvements and a new playground at Setterquist Park.

PAL Project:
PAL contributed $82,000 on top of the original PB grant of $250,000, and has begun construction at the VCUSD-owned fields on Wallace Avenue. In March 2016, City Council allocated an additional $10,000 contingency to the project. The building is up and undergoing finishing touches and final accessibility improvements, with an estimated completion date of May 31, 2016.
