[ARCHIVED] Mayor Christenson Commits $1 million in funds towards Trafton Park Improvements

Trafton Park

 At last weekend’s annual Jacob Street Block Party Mayor Christenson announced he had committed an additional $1 million towards improving Trafton Park. “I see first-hand how well received the investments in the playground and walking path at Trafton have been received by the community,” said Mayor Christenson. “That response and Councillor Winslow’s perseverance has convinced me to dedicate $1 million to the next phase of park improvements, up from the initial $700,000 I committed. I look forward to working with residents, Councillors Camell and Winslow to start to implement further phases of the Trafton Master Plan including improvements at the dog park.” 

Councillor Winslow who hosted the Block Party thanked Mayor Christenson and noted that the Mayor had a great track record of following through on his commitments. “When the Mayor in his first year committed to build the Northern Strand Trail, a stone path was built within a year,” said Councillor Winslow. “When residents called on the path to be paved, the paving happened quickly after that.”
