Business Impact Statement
Advisory Board Statement
Department of Parks and Recreation: Provence House
The Provence House is a County of San Diego owned property in the Bonita community, adjacent to the City of Chula Vista’s Rohr Park which offers nearly 60 acres of park land including walking trails, sports fields and courts, shelters/gazebos and picnic areas. The Provence House, mostly used as a location for community meetings previously, is currently undergoing renovations such as water infrastructure improvements, window/door replacement, a bathroom remodel, and parking lot improvements. The vision after the renovations are complete is that the Provence House will become a coveted location and destination in the Bonita community for special event rentals and community events. Today’s grant will provide funds for the design, environmental review and construction of a parking lot adjacent to Provence House.
San Diego County Library – Imperial Beach Branch
Imperial Beach, part of the First Supervisorial District, anticipates redevelopment and expansion of their aging County branch library. The new library will incorporate sustainable design components and will connect with the City of Imperial Beach Community Center. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2014. Today’s grant, if approved, will provide funds to purchase additional books, DVDs, educational materials, furniture, fixtures, and equipment for the new Imperial Beach Library. With the grand opening of the newly reconstructed library in spring 2015 and with these new library materials, furniture, and equipment, we hope to support youth education and significantly improve the lives of residents in Imperial Beach.
Linkage to the County of San Diego Strategic Plan
These grants provide an opportunity for the Board of Supervisors to assist worthy organizations that promote the County’s vision of a region that is safe, healthy, and thriving.
