Progress Update: Lakeview Park Stage

Measuring a similar community stage to collect information and visualize Bragtown’s desired product

Reinvestment Partners is partnering with the Bragtown Community Association (BCA) to design and construct a stage and surrounding landscaping in Lakeview Park. This park stage is a part of BCA’s community vision and as a result is included in Durham Parks and Recreation Master plan for Lakeview Park. Bragtown has been granted a permit application through Durham Parks and Recreation, identified a local builder, and determined that the placement of the stage should be located close to an electrical access. The stage will be a park amenity open for Bragtown residents, Durhamites, and visitors. When constructed, the impact of this project is projected to touch over 7,844 individuals. This project is one of two proposals from 2021 in which a neighborhood chose to combine funds with a nonprofit to maximize desired outcomes.

This project was funded during FY 2021.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the circumstances it brought to us individually as well as to the work of teams together, some neighborhoods and organizations have been granted extensions to complete their projects with fidelity and submit their Evaluation and Reflection Reports accordingly. This is a progress report for a project with an extension. Information will be updated when the Evaluation and Reflection Report is submitted.
