The Parks and Recreation Department is the recipient of this year’s Moda Assist Program and we have received $30,600 to install new, inclusive play equipment at Violet LaPlante Park.  We have developed a short survey to get feedback from community members about their preferences for the new play equipment planned using the Moda Assist funds, we anticipate installation in fall 2021.  We’re hoping to get input over the next two weeks so we can order the equipment in August.


The survey can be found here:
