The city of Seattle is now accepting proposals to the Neighborhood Park and Street Fund (NPSF), formerly known as the Neighborhood Projects Fund. This fund supports improvements to neighborhood streets and parks proposed by the community. The deadline for applications is February 4, 2013.
The NPSF can be used for projects valued up to $90,000. Park projects that have been funded in the past include playground improvements, trail upgrades, tennis or basketball court repaving, natural area renovations, and accessibility improvements. Examples of street projects include crossing improvements such as marked crosswalks, curb ramps, and pedestrian countdown signals; and traffic calming, such as traffic circles, median islands, and speed feedback signs.
