Recently, NSPSF Campaign Chairperson Jeff Dickerson received two very exciting pieces of information that will help facilitate building Phase 2 of the Project.
The first part of the great news is that Mountain Sky Guest Ranch (MSGR) has offered a 1 to 1 matching grant of up to $100,000. The value of cash donations received for Phase 2 will now be worth twice as much with this very generous matching grant.
The lower-than-expected cost estimate for Phase 2 is the second part of great news for this new city park. New Phase 2 estimates of $400,000 – $450,000 are significantly less than the original estimate of $650,000 done in 2007.
These two pieces of news together mean that the NSPSF Project needs to raise $150,000 – $200,000 by February 1st to allow the bid advertising to go out for summer 2011 construction. Phase 2 would then be open for public use 12 months after seeding. Once Phase 2 is open for public use, the Livingston Youth Soccer Association (LYSA) will be able to host soccer tournaments in Livingston, and the park will be available for major community events.
