VOTING COMPLETE, TWO PROJECTS FUNDED
Thank you for participating in the Neighborhood Enhancement Program! In July and August 2010, you joined in the process of selecting your highest priority neighborhood project to receive Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP) funds. Now you will see the results of your efforts.
Factoria residents identified a total of over $220,000 worth of eligible projects, for which $120,000 is available. In order to prioritize these proposals, ballots were mailed to all households in the Factoria NEP area.
Residents who voted will receive an Action Plan in the mail this month. It contains the list of those proposed projects that were selected for funding as a result of the votes, as well as items that did not receive enough votes to be considered for funding. The voting results, project descriptions, cost estimates, and contact information for project managers are listed for the funded projects. A map showing the locations of the projects is also included.
The economic downturn has had a major impact on our community. Like many other agencies and organizations across the country, we are facing a challenging budget cycle with very limited revenues. The City’s goal has been and always will be to continue to provide high quality programs and services, while minimizing impacts on neighborhoods.
The City is in the process of identifying priorities and building a new service delivery model under the current budget situation. NEP, along with all other city programs and services, is being reviewed and evaluated. Therefore, this could affect our ability to complete NEP projects. We will implement projects as budget allows.
This cycle of Factoria NEP has brought many neighbors together. The Factoria community has shown tremendous community spirit throughout the whole process. The program can’t succeed without your participation and support. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this challenging economic climate.
