Project Title & Description
Let Us Build Cully Park
The "Let us Build Cully Park" Project is focused on NE Portland�s Cully Neighborhood which suffers from multiple environmental harms � poverty, Brownfields, lack of food access, parks and habitat, and lack of storm water management infrastructure. This project is designed to do outreach and design session activities that include a public education program. This project relates to the Clean Water Act in that it promotes community training in storm water management techniques. Outreach activities involve Cully Park residents participating in the design of park improvements aimed at avoiding potential exposure to methane and groundwater contamination. Through educating community youth about landfills, park development, environmental protection and green careers, students will be empowered to design the community garden and nature play area.
