Thanks to community donors and our anonymous matching donor, the $200K needed in contributions has been reached! Together, we did it!
In preparing the strategy for building Valdese Lakeside Park with grant money and private donations, the first goal was to raise $200K to match the DEQ Greenway Grant – due on December 31, 2018.
Erin Schotte with the Community Development Division of WPCOG completed the application and submitted it on behalf of the town. Erin worked on the PARTF grant the town was awarded to help purchase the park property. She knows the project well and we are lucky to have her writing the park grants.
Don’t stop donating! We are still accepting donations – there are more grants to match! The more money we have, the more amenities we can build. See the plans.
