Meeting Notice: Build It With kaBoom! Grant Opportunity

The Niagara Falls Community Development Department has an opportunity to accept a "Build It With kaBoom!" Grant to create a park/playground on the 400 Block of 7th Street. Our goal is to create opportunities for free play in every Niagara Falls neighborhood. This grant would allow the creation of a public space for young people without the use of local taxpayer dollars. Our department is hosting an open meeting on Thursday, May 3, 2018, to get input from the surrounding neighborhood before moving forward.

The "Build It With Kaboom!" Grant opportunity, if accepted, would create a 2,500 square foot playground at the site. This grant includes the community design, equipment and organization of the actual three day build process.

Neighborhood projects are only successful through neighborhood consensus. This grant would include a three month design process, but we do not want to move forward without hearing any ideas, thoughts or concerns from the neighborhood that directly surrounds the site.

Meeting Date: Thursday, May 3, 2018

Time: 4 pm

Location: 607 Walnut Avenue, Niagara Falls, New York
