Grants Supporting Organizations to Build Stronger Communities across the Province
BRIGHTON, ON – MPP David Piccini announced today that the Municipality of Brighton received $125,000 from the provincial government to support the construction of the Brighton skateboard park. The grant will help expand the skate park, including adding new ramps and making additional improvements for local youth.
The province’s investment in this project is expected to bring positive change to over 2,500 people in Brighton. These initiatives are helping develop and expand infrastructure to foster more active lifestyles, and this project is something the community has long been asking for.
“I am pleased that our government is supporting the Municipality of Brighton with a $125,000 grant to support a project this community wants and needs,” said David Piccini, MPP for Northumberland-Peterborough South. “With this funding, the Municipality is able to move forward with plans to build a new skateboard park for the community. This project has been widely supported by the community and I am glad to have been able to help make it a reality.”
“The Municipality of Brighton is thrilled to receive this grant,” said Mayor Brian Ostrander. “With these monies we are now in a position to proceed building a new – state of the art – skateboard park for our community. Brighton Council and I are strong supporters of youth and youth activity in Brighton and this new park will be a testament to that engagement.”
