LANI-Maintenance Matching Fund Workshop I

LANI, the Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative, a local non-profit, is offering matching grants to anyone in the community who has a neighborhood improvement/beautification/maintenance project they would like to do in their community.  If you have an idea for making Mid-City a better place to live and work, please consider attending their September 19th workshop and apply for your own matching grant.  (LANI is the entity that found funds to design and build our the pocket park on Normandie and Cordova, between Washington and the 10 Freeway.)

Examples of eligible projects include:
– Cleaning/painting of defaced public city property (street lights, bus shelters, etc.)
– Monument installation, cleanup, and repair (our wonderful granite monuments)
– Graffiti cleanup/paint out
– Landscape installation/cleanup/trimming
– Sidewalk steam cleaning
– Street tree and tree grate maintenance
– Tree watering

Talk with friends and neighbors and find a project you think would make an impact on Mid-City.  Let’s do something!  See the note from LANI below.
