What is going on in Ward 3?....
I have formed a Hiller Park Commitee which is now considered a Non-Profit. Which we also won Non-Profit volunteer of the year for 2016.
This committee is to help me develop special events for the community all while keeping prices family affordable. We charge very little for the purpose of raising money to go back into the park for a new playground (Special needs accessible) new restrooms, spalsh pad, new lighting, new basketball and tennis courts, Blueway trail, new pavillion, benches and much more!
Finally we have our new playground. Two to be exact! One for 2 to 5 year olds and another for 6 to 12 year olds. We also have new swing sets and a policeman car and fireman car.
Pictures of playground as listed.
Ribbon Cutting will be held January 28th to honor Alhambra for donating a wheelchair swing!
Mrs. Beverly Martin, County Supervisor has graciously agreed to install splash pad for us!
We also have applied for a grant to be able to purchase a canopy to cover the playground.
Thank you to all Sponsors and Volunteers!

Extending Tax Abatement District
Proposed Popps Ferry Bridge and extension
Brown, Mitchell, and Alexander, Inc. presented to the council the progress on the Popps Ferry Bridge and extension. The cost is estimated to be around $118 Million, therefore requiring federal funding. This project has been in the planning process for years and unfortunately will still be in the planning statgies for around another 15 or so years. There will be a need for purchasing right of ways in the Labonne Terre, Anatole Bay, Tri-County Eye Clinic, and around 75 homes North and South of the proposed bridge.
Help keep our City Beautiful!
We have a group that goes around picking up trash in Ward 3. Want to get involved?

I am working on a resolution that the tax abatement area will extend to Pass Road. If a business spends so much money that will get a tax abatement which is an incentive to do so.
