Do you have a great idea for a project in the VPNA? Every year the City of Boise gives out grants for hundreds of thousands of dollars to neighborhood associations for a variety of neighborhood improvement projects. Last year the VPNA was awarded 2 grants, one for neighborhood outreach that funds our newsletter, and another large grant to put swings and limited electricity access in Fairview Park. We are currently looking for ideas and volunteers to apply for grants again in the next few months. What would you like to see in your neighborhood? Some ideas we are currently thinking about are: new playground equipment for Whittier elementary, adding/improving street lights, a bicycle maintenance station, an accessible path around a pond, or West End signs.
