Body
Background:
The City of Delray Beach requested a legislative appropriation for improvements to Catherine Strong Park. Catherine Strong Park is located at 1500 SW 6th Street and is a high use facility for programs, sports, and neighborhood play. The funds requested will provide the purchase and installation of a new playground pavilion. The pavilion will provide a much needed shade structure for the neighborhood children, program participants, and youth organizations that frequent the park.

The City of Delray Beach has received an appropriation from the State of Florida to reimburse project funding for a playground pavilion. As part of the eligibility requirements, the State of Florida requires the City of Delray Beach to enter into a contract agreement to receive the funding. If funding is granted, it will be provided through a Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) grant agreement. The legislative appropriation/grant requires the City to commit to funding the project. These funds will be reimbursed by the FDEP grant.
