COPS / Metro Alliance Leverages $1 Million for Park Restoration

Hundreds convened to celebrate the restoration of 'Fr. Benavides Park' which sits across the street from St. Timothy Catholic Church. Having already leveraged $500 thousand for a master plan which includes a playground, basketball court, lighting, bathrooms and jogging path, COPS / Metro Alliance leveraged a commitment from Councilmember Gonzales for $500 thousand more. The Vicar General of the Catholic Archdiocese "gave his enthusiastic support to the agenda."
