The Borough has allocated $150,000 from the Parks and Rec budget and assigned a member of their Planning Department to work on this project. Thank you to the Borough for taking this important first step. Ketchikan Youth Initiatives is supporting this project by forming a users group to help with the park design and garner support in the form of in-kind and cash donations from the community and funding from grants. The cost to complete this park including a roof to keep it dry is considerably more than $150,000. We encourage all members of our community (of all ages) who have time and/or resources to join in this effort.
Please contact the KYI Vice-President Adult Advisor, Bob Fultz, at bobzplace[AT]gmail.com; youth members Craig Jackson (text 821-8159) or Steven Perro (text 821-8829); or kyibooard[AT]gmail.com to offer your support. Your involvement is very important to carrying this project forward. Our youth are the future of our community.
