Resources to Help Reduce Illegal Dumping and Blight


Community Build Day - June 30, 2007

The new playground structure at Shields-Reid Park was selected, with the help of youth from the Shields-Reid Community Center. The City of Richmond Parks Division administered the bid process for the Shields Reid playground rehabilitation project. McNabb Construction Inc. was selected for the demolition of the old equipment, site preparation and the installation of a concrete base, rubberized surfacing and playground bark.  Ross Recreation was selected as the playground equipment provider. In addition to the funding from the Mitigation Fee Expenditure Plan, the Community Development Housing Corporation of North Richmond (CHDC) received a KaBOOM grant for $3,000 to go toward the purchase of the new equipment and $500 to purchase tools for use on the Build Day.

On Saturday, June 30, 2007, community members, youth from Shields-Reid Community Center, North Richmond YouthBuild, Supervisor John Gioia, Community Development Housing Corporation of North Richmond (CHDC) staff, and City and County staff (special thanks to City of Richmond Parks Staff) came together for an all-day community build day in which the majority of the Sheilds-Reid playground structure was erected. The event received news coverage from KCRT, West County Times, Channel 2 and Channel 5. Home Page | Bulky Item Pick-up & Disposal Voucher Programs | Community Build Day | Community Clean-up
