The parks millage approved by EGR voters in November 2021 provides funding for the replacement of five playgrounds in our City as well as improvements to several EGR parks. The mobility improvements are part of the City’s 2020 Mobility Bike Action Plan. https://www.eastgr.org/533/2020-MobilityBike-Action-Plan
Please join us for as many sessions as you can. Specific topics for each open house and dates for future input sessions will be provided in the East Express. We won’t be mailing notices for each input session, so you’ll want to sign up for our e-newsletter at www.eastgr.org/signup.
We hope you can join us in the coming months to learn more about these projects and provide input along the way. For more information about the parks improvement millage, visit eastgr.org/parksmillage.
