Public Improvements Advisory Committee (PIAC) Process To Request Infrastructure Improvement
Over the past 12 years, the Marlborough Community Coalition has been successful in directing over $7million of infrastructure improvements and planning projects to our neighborhood. Most of those projects provided benefit to more than just a few households. The playground at 81st and Tracy was one of the Coalition's requests. While $7 million seems like a large number, the Coalition requested projects totaling 4 to 5 times that amount. Competition for the funds is very robust, to say the least.

Individuals or multiple people on a block can also submit applications for projects. Visit for details about why types of projects are eligible for consideration and to access the online application. At the June Community Meeting, there were several city speakers offering suggestions and answering questions. A video of the meeting can be found on the Coalition's facebook page. We learned from the speakers that presenting a project at a PIAC Hearing is important. The 5th District Hearing is Tuesday, August 9th.

Thank You Urban Rangers For Beautifying Marlborough!
On 10 of the summer's hottest days, the Urban Rangers Program, a non-profit organization that works with boys and young men as they learn the responsibility of hard work through community service and teamwork made a big dent in cleaning up and beautifying the Paseo/Woodland corridor between 79th and the Trolley Track Trail and in Marlborough Terrace Green Space (81st & Troost) and Arleta Park (77th & Prospect) Two teams of 10 young men and their two adult leaders, volunteered a total of 300 hours! Their trash pick-up and landscape clean up resulted in 35 bags of yard waste, one load of brush and 21 bags of trash! We wish the young men the best as they head back to school and we hope their leaders get a little rest and relaxation in a quiet, air conditioned place:) We can't thank them all enough!!
