Here’s another great use of Front Porch Forum… this time by the City of Burlington’s Parks and Rec. Department…

The Department of Parks and Recreation has received funding in the new fiscal year 2008 budget to replace the playground at Schmanska Park on Grove Street. With input from the Front Porch Forum, we have completed the design process and have ordered the play equipment. Installation is scheduled for mid October. A colored perspective of the new playground may be view by going to the department’s website at There is a link to the design on our home page.

Ditto for Baird Park.  Melissa Young used FPF to reach neighbors in several neighborhoods surrounding the two playgrounds in question.
