The city of Guadalupe is raising money to renovate Leroy Park and Community Center.
To pay for the project, the city says it used $4.1 million of a $4.5 million grant it received in 2018 from the state's Housing and Community Development department. Last year, the city also received an additional $900,000 to pay for the project.
However, construction costs increased in the three years between when the application for the project was submitted and the first day of construction. As a result, the city no longer has enough funding.
While the first phase of the project is funded, the city is raising money to fund phase 2 which costs more than $1.5 million.
Elements the city is hoping to fund:
- Front field & picnic area
- Front east picnic area
- Phase 2 site improvements
- Playground area
- Adult exercise area
- Rear field & earthen amphitheater
- West parking improvement
- Multi-use addition
Ways to donate:
- Memorial trees: $300
- Memorial benches: $1,100
- Donation bricks: $500
- Naming rights (various amounts)
