Subject: City and GPCOG Seeking Planning Grant for East Bayside
As I might have mentioned to you recently, the City and GPCOG are working on a Brownfields Grant from EPA that could fund a substantial neighborhood planning initiative in East Bayside. I am sorry for the short notice, but we need letters of support from potential partners. Attached is a one page project description prepared by Caroline Paras of GPCOG.
If you are willing to sign onto this project we need a letter on your letterhead as soon as possible, no later than the morning of September 16, as I have to get it to GPCOG on that date.
Obviously EBNO is a critical partner. I am happy to discuss this with you to clarify the dimensions of the project as we see it. At this point it is pretty conceptual, and if/when we get a grant, we can discuss a mutually agreeable work plan. I see this as complementary to the upcoming efforts to repeat the SDAT that you are currently seeking.
Let me know if this works for you. For context, it was an EPA Brownfields grant that helped us produce the Bayside Vision Plan. The grant request is for around $200,000, and our chances of success are probably pretty good. So this is a potentially great opportunity.
