Cross-Strauss Parklet Renovation

We need your help to raise $40,000 for lighting in Cross-Strauss Parklet.

Thanks to our community advocacy, the City Council approved an amendment to the Mayor's 2023 City Budget to include $135,000 to renovate Cross Strauss Parklet.

We trust that $40,000 for lighting will be included in the 2024 budget.

As of November 2023, the total renovation cost is $374,050. We have secured $318,275 in committed funding for the project! A funding gap of $55,775 will cover lighting and amenities such as a grill and a covered seating area/ pavillion.

Every donation matters. 100% of funding will be used for playground infrastructure or for programming the parklet and the restored greenway directly across from the parklet. 

Thank you in advance for helping to rebuild the community for the future.*
