Funding Secured: $4.5MM in pledges from neighborhood developers, $1.64MM from the Eastern Neighborhood Citizens Advisory Committee.
Clubhouse HRE Approval: Final HRE (Historical Research Evaluation) was approved by the Historic Preservation Staff in the spring of 2017.
Design Plans: After considerable community input and workshopping, Fletcher Studio and Jackson Liles Architecture have designed an ingenious project that creates new open space and also allows more efficient use of the current recreational fields and playgrounds.
Political Support: Our current D10 Supervisor Malia Cohen approves and supports this project. All D10 Supervisor candidates have expressed support as well.
FOJP Non-Profit Formed: FoJP received their IRS determination letter in Aug. 2018
