Commission Okays Grants for New Tennis Courts, Playground Sun Shade

Commissioners Thursday evening approved a pair of $50,000 grant requests that would fund a sun shade over the playground and safety ground cover at Gardenia Park on Berckman Street and construction of new tennis courts.

City Manager Gary La Venia told commissioners that independent grant writer Greg Fox will earn $3,000 if both grants are approved.

The Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program (FRDAP) will provide the funding if the grants are approved.

La Venia will host a public meeting at 2 p.m. on July 30 to explain the grants to anyone who’s interested.

The grants do not require local matching funds.
