Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) is excited to launch the new and improved Community Activated Park Projects Program (formally Community Initiated Project). PARD’s goal for the Community Activated Park Projects program (CAPP) is to streamline the proposal process for our nonprofit partners and community member’s seeking to initiate improvements on parkland.  CAPP proposals will be reviewed on a quarterly basis by the PARD Review Committee (some exceptions apply – please read the proposal form for details). The proposal encompasses all phases of project inception.

This proposal form provides PARD and the Review Committee the relevant information to understand, research, and review the project for feasibility. Proposed CAPP projects over $2,000.00 are reviewed on a quarterly basis (January 1, April 1, July 1, October 1).
