City of Eureka press release:

The City of Eureka is excited to announce that the Parks & Recreation Department has been awarded a $125,350 Housing-Related Parks (HRP) program award for the 2015 designated program year (DPY). The goal of the HRP program is to increase the overall supply of housing affordable to lower-income households by providing financial incentives for the creation, expansion or renovation of community parks and recreation amenities.

The City of Eureka will be using these funds towards the construction of a playground and restroom facility at the Del Norte Street Pier Park. We are extremely happy to continue to set the standard in the region for acquiring funding for much needed capital improvements to our Parks and Recreation facilities due to the lack of available funding from the general fund.
