Parks budget and us

Parks has two key budget areas: Maintenance (Maintenance, Gardening and Security Staff) and Capital Construction improvement projects.

The Chair of City Council’s Parks Committee Mark Levine wants $27 million to be included in Parks budget ,over the amount already in place for maintenance, for “neighborhood parks (those not funded by wealthy conservancies).

Levine reported that the mayor reiterated “his commitment to closing the parks equity gap…”

The Mayor has also continued to include $80 million in capital funding for Parks department use for “neighborhood parks” in the budget.

Parks Department has requested 55 capital division jobs to help move all new projects forward.
