Donations are important to the vitality of the City and its mission to preserve, enhance and strengthen the quality of life in the community. The following information explains the process for celebrating and commemorating the events or lives of individuals who have lived in this community through donations and how to support our youth programs.

Anyone wishing to commemorate an anniversary, celebrate a new birth, or honor the memory of a loved one may request that trees, benches, playground equipment, etc. be placed through a donation within the City. These requests must be approved by the Departments and/or Commissions that have jurisdiction over the site. The Departments/Commissions are responsible for making sure that special requests are consistent with park plans, function, operations and current aesthetic needs.
