Background: Together 2017 is a campaign where our region’s business and community leaders do what they do best; partner together, combine energy with resources, invest in our community and promote our community’s brand and quality of life. Together 2017 uses funds to support community projects that make our region a better place to live and work. Project ideas are contributed by the public, by Together 2017 partners and their next Generation representatives. This year, Together 2017 has collaborated with the Parks and Recreation Department for a project and will be donating a Fitness Park to Rotary Park. This Fitness Park is valued at $73.650.00.

Analysis: This Fitness Park is a donation to the city through Together 2017 and will be utilized by citizens using Rotary Park as well as those citizens using that portion of the Riverwalk.

Financial Considerations: This will be at no cost to the City as it is a private donation.

Fiscal Impact: None expected except for routine maintenance of the Fitness Park.
