The City of Branson awarded more than $9,000 through its Neighborhood Grant Program to local neighborhood organizations at Tuesday’s Board of Aldermen meeting for several different projects that will strengthen the community and benefit residents.

The Neighborhood Grant Program provides a partnership between the City of Branson and its neighborhood organizations by supporting projects aimed at building community, attracting new and diverse members and sustaining those already involved. Neighborhood organizations have to apply, detail its projects and meet specific requirements. Those applications are then reviewed by the Planning and Development Department and the Budget & Finance Committee. The grant money is budgeted annually and comes from the City’s General Fund.

This year, the Branson North Neighborhood organization was awarded $6,109 to install new concrete stairs, two benches, and one picnic table within Branson North Park. The Hiawatha Heights Neighborhood Organization received $400 to purchase compost fertilizer, flowers and weed management for its neighborhood garden park. The Lucia Ridge Neighborhood Organization received $2,658 to install two benches, a stone border around the butterfly garden, five dog waste stations and a book exchange in its parks (Alexander, Epps, Nygard and Sunset).

“The Board of Aldermen’s commitment to our neighborhoods through this grant has been very beneficial in creating lasting partnerships and strong communication,” said Joel Hornickel, Director of Planning and Development.  “It’s exciting each year to see neighbors working together to improve their neighborhoods.”

The City has offered this program since 2014 and has awarded almost $40,000 to local neighborhoods. To find out more about the Neighborhood Grant Program and how to apply, visit the City’s website at https://www.bransonmo.gov/214/Neighborhoods.
