The City of Brea, a long time TPA client, was recently awarded $950,000 from the California Natural Resources Agency to a segment of their Tracks at Brea Project. This entire project will consist of a four mile multi-use trail that will traverse the City from east to west. The trail consists of paved bikeways as well as pedestrian footpaths that will provide critical public access for the community. The portion funded by this grant is over one-quarter of a mile in length and consists of more than 150,000 square feet and 3.9 acres of future green space.
Townsend Public Affairs was instrumental in securing the Urban Greening Project Grant. The Urban Greening Project grant consisted of a two part application, a competitive concept proposal as well as a competitive full application. TPA worked extensively with City of Brea staff to write and submit the concept proposal. After receiving notice that the concept proposal had been cleared to submit a full application, TPA worked with City staff to draft the full grant application. In addition, TPA conducted extensive advocacy on behalf of the submitted application.
In 2010, the City received funding from an Urban Greening Planning Grant that contributed to the acquisition of the land for this Project Grant. The most recent award will fund the construction on this land. TPA is proud to have been part of this complete, fully-funded, Urban Greening project from acquisition to construction!
The City of Brea and TPA made a great team while working towards securing the grant. We extend our congratulations to the City of Brea!
