Liberty Park Breaks Ground / Learning from Ahbrey

"It will bring up the community a little more. Not make it seem like we're all bad people because we're really not." - Ahbrey Shackelford.

Ahbrey is a young resident that lives near Liberty Park. This was her quote, when a news crew interviewed her about the planned renovation of the park, voted on by the public via participatory budgeting, utilizing United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.

We printed the quote and put it at the Carnegie Building, so that we had to pass it everyday as haunting motivation. Liberty Park broke ground yesterday. It will be a special place for a neighborhood that needs one. Ahbrey's quote is staying up. Thank you to everyone who helped get this project moving.
