Palmdale Awarded $2 Million in Measure A Grants

As stated in an article in the Antelope Valley Times, March 4, 2022, the city of Palmdale was awarded $2 million in Los Angeles County Measure A Competitive Grant Program funding, part of over $26 million in funds distributed to improve parks and open spaces across Los Angeles County. It marks the completion of the first-ever cycle of three competitive grant programs from Measure A, a parcel tax that was passed by voters in 2016. Palmdale was awarded a $1 million Regional Recreation Facilities, Multi-Use Trails and Accessibility grant for the Marie Kerr Park Pool facility expansion. The funds will be used to expand the pool deck capacity for bleachers and gatherings, add additional entrance and exit routes, provide ADA compatibility, and improve connectivity to the adjacent recreation center. Additionally, Palmdale received another $1 million in funding under the City Natural Lands, Local Beaches, Water Conservation and Protection grant which is being earmarked for Amargosa Creek Trail enhancements. The project will improve the trail, establish trailheads, and add amenities, such as tables, educational signage, fitness equipment, and bicycle repair infrastructure. It will also include planting native drought tolerant vegetation to sequester greenhouse gasses and reduce a heat island effect.
