Park projects get city funds

The city Department of Neighborhoods recently awarded $100,000 grants from its Large Project Fund Awards program to the Leschi Community Council's Powell Barnett Legacy project and the Friends of Madison Park's Madison Park Community Playfield physical-improvement project.
Leschi residents John Barber and Maisha Barnett received their $100,000 award certificate from acting Department of Neighborhoods director Bernie Matsuno, Mayor Greg Nickels and Citizen Review Team member Doug Lorentzen during a July 15 ceremony at Madison Park. The grant will be used for the public-art project at Powell Barnett Park, whose namesake is Maisha Barnett's grandfather.
