*Project Notes:

Original budget included $30,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding.  Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the CDBG funds have since been diverted for other community needs.  Hence, the original proposed lighting improvements are no longer included in the plan. It is possible that CDBG funding may become available for Worley Street Park in the future.
