Armatage Neighborhood Funds Survey
The Armatage Neighborhood Association has remaining, unspent funds and we need your input!
City funding for neighborhood organizations like the ANA expires in 2020. There isn’t a new plan in place for 2021 and beyond yet, but funding is expected to decrease significantly or possibly end entirely.
The neighborhood has enough remaining funds (just over $220,000) to keep popular programs and community services going for approximately the next 4+ years, from 2020 through 2023.
We’ve drafted a plan to allocate these one-time funds and need your feedback to keep Armatage a livable, lovable community. Scroll through to see the plan and tell us what you think by Friday, November 15.
The final neighborhood and board vote will take place on Tuesday, November 19 at 6:30pm at the Armatage Rec Center. Everyone 18 years and older who lives or represents a business in Armatage is eligible to vote.
