Many of our neighbors have inquired about the status of the PB projects. While LPNA is not managing all the PB projects (this is the City’s responsibility), some of its members have personal interest to ensure the success of their own projects championed through the PB process. As a result, those involved in managing their own projects have better insight to the status vs others within the community. Information is always available through the City’s District 2 website. The Parks Upgrade information below is more up to date with thanks to Parks Upgrade member Herb Bowen managing that group’s projects.
