Lafayette Hart Park Improvements
During the fourth quarter of 2017, significant progress was made on several park improvement projects. Construction of the new outdoor covered gazebo and restrooms in Lafayette Hart Park is more than 90 percent complete. Newly installed brick pavers heighten the aesthetic appeal of the park and create a safer drop-off and pick-up zone along the circular driveway and parking lot. Plans for off-site parking are in the design stage. The Lafayette Hart Park improvements include the new community center that is currently in use by the Washington Park Civic Association and local community groups for meetings and special occasion affairs. Investment: $470,000
Safe Routes Broward Mobile App
The Healthy Community Zone designation within Central County resulted in an initiative with United Health Partnerships to utilize mobile devices as tools to build community capacity to help resolve non-emergency public safety issues. The County Commission extended the service period for the Broward Municipal Services District’s Safe Routes Broward Mobile App, enabling residents and visitors to Central County and Broadview Park to report issues in real-time, such as damage to infrastructure, blighted conditions on public property and other non-emergency issues that hinder safe travel through the community, and independently track progress to resolution. Download the App for free from Apple and Android App stores today!
Neighborhood Parks’ Programs
Broward Municipal Services District parks provide direct services to residents and the community-at-large. By providing on-site programs designed to strengthen families, the parks are a resourceful asset in the community. Programs like the Hot Supper Program, Little Libraries and the Teen Club provide pathways to solutions. The Hot Supper Program combats hunger among neighborhood children and guarantees that every child participating in BMSD Neighborhood Parks’ programs will have access to a hot meal before leaving the park. Extensive collaborations with community partners produce programs and community events that heighten awareness about abuse and social responsibility and where to get help. Professional guidance and counseling workshops such as the Parent Camps facilitate greater understanding of how to improve academic performance and achieve good health.
