Citizens for Brentwood Green Space Reaches Halfway Point Toward Smith Park Goal

The Citizens for Brentwood Green Space presented the City of Brentwood a check in the amount of $10,000 at the August 22, 2016, Brentwood City Commission meeting. This is the sixth check presented to the City for Marcella Vivrette Smith Park and makes the total donations from the group and its donors over $150,000.
CBGS formally announced a goal to help raise $300,000 in late 2011 towards the acquisition of the remaining 77.89 acres at Ravenswood Farm, which was later acquired in early 2014.  Remarked President Gil Hutchinson “CBGS continues to push to add green space in our community.  With this payment, a total of $150,534.69 has been paid project to date. Tonight’s presentation marks an important milestone in our organization’s history as it represents the “Half Way Mark” towards our goal!”  These funds helped Brentwood purchase the remaining acres at Ravenswood Farm and add future amenities at Marcella Vivrette Smith Park, including the development of a new picnic shelter as part of the City’s Phase II expansion.
