I am very pleased to announce that my motion to provide $350,000 in local developers’ fees to support the construction of an accessible play space at Brown PS was supported by City Council this week.
As you know well, Brown Public School has long been in need of new recreational facilities to serve local students and the wider community. This funding will provide new accessible equipment that will allow children of all abilities to participate, and to be included, in recreational activities with each other.
I’ve had the opportunity to help fund other accessible playgrounds throughout Midtown, most recently at Oriole Park and Deer Park, and I believe it’s important that kids of every ability have the opportunity to be included in the life of their school and play with all of their friends.
I very much look forward to working closely with Principal Goldfarb, the Brown School Parent Council, Trustee Laskin and local residents to build a wonderful new play space for all of our community’s children.
