Matt Moritz has only been the Grounds Coordinator for around 10 months and his contributions and positive impacts have already made a vast difference in the Parks Maintenance Division and Parks Department as a whole.  Matt is eager to help, excited to make improvements, and constantly seeks ways to help out our team; always with a positive and friendly attitude.  In addition to streamlining daily and routine tasks and assisting the seasonal Grounds crew, Matt has undertaken several large projects aimed at raising the standard of care at our sites.  These include overhauls of softball infields, renovations of beds at the Community Garden, decreasing the impacts of nesting birds at Port of Play’s covered area, and many more.  Thank you Matt!
