Crews Break Ground on Farnsworth Turf Field and Playground
Construction crews broke ground on the Farnsworth turf field and playground on September 21.
The new playground was partially funded using the aldermanic discretionary budget after it won community support during the 45th Ward participatory budgeting process. Supplemental funding came from the Elston/Armstrong TIF and as part of a $36 million plan I unveiled last year to improve 45th Ward schools.
Voting for the 2019 participatory budgeting cycle opens Monday, October 1. To learn more about participatory budgeting in the 45th Ward, visit the PB45 website.
