UP has a come a long way since it got started last year - we've built a reputation with the City, held dozens of successful events, and made our fundraising goal of $150,000. Since we've completed the construction budget, the Parks Department is ready to put the project out to bid. If everything goes according to schedule, ground will be broken at John and Summit early next year and the park/P-Patch will be completed by the end of Summer 2010!
While the big push is behind us, there's still plenty of work left to do. We're continuing to raise funds for features of the park/P-Patch that are to added after the construction is finished (P-Patch tool shed and compost bins, for example) and there are still plenty of folks in the neighborhood who have no idea a brand new park is coming their way next year. The best way to keep up with further developments is to follow the UP blog or to join the UP listserve by emailing moc.liamg|esidarap.gnivapnu#moc.liamg|esidarap.gnivapnu.
