  • Lincoln Heights Recreation Center: The commission allocated $50,000  in Quimby Funds, which are fees paid on certain types of residential development, to refurbish electrical and mechanical systems and replace the roof of a senior center.
  • Ramona Hall Community Center: The commission approved spending $12,000  in Quimby Funds to improve the electrical and mechanical systems for Ramona Hall, which hosts community meetings, after-school programs and other activities next in Highland Park.
  • Silver Lake Recreation Center: The commission approved an additional $50,000  in Quimby Funds  to pay for permanent shade structures, fencing, retaining walls and a new irrigation system near the basketball court.  The commission had previously allocated $150,000 for this project.
