The Arlington City Council approved $77,660 in new Neighborhood Matching Grants for four projects across the city, including:

  • La Frontera Homeowners Association, Inc. - $20,060 for La Frontera playground improvement
  • Inniswood Owners Association, Inc. - $17,480 for California Lane fence replacement and landscaping
  • Clubview Addition (with the Arlington Sculpture Garden Foundation) - $25,000 for Meadowbrook Park Sculpture Garden addition
  • Cantor Park Condominiums Homeowners Association, Inc. - $15,120 for landscaping improvements

The Neighborhood Matching Grant program was developed in 2007 to foster civic pride, enhance neighborhoods and encourage collaboration between residents and City government. For a project to be considered, it must be submitted by neighbors, serve a public purpose, have a detailed timeline, and meet all City codes. Each neighborhood must also contribute 20% grant match towards the project through cash, in-kind donations and/or volunteer hours.

You can read more about the approved Neighborhood Matching Grant projects and the new Fire Station 1 that opened in Downtown Arlington, in the latest edition of the Champion Great Neighborhoods newsletter. All quarterly City Council priority newsletters are produced in a digital format, allowing for layers of additional video content and important links.
