About the FPA


Ongoing and ad hoc committees are composed of community volunteers, like you.

Forestville Community Fund Advisory Committee
The funds are granted once a year in June.

  • Consists of various representatives from the community
  • Reviews applications that are submitted requesting grants from the quarry money
  • Makes recommendations to FPA Board re: who qualifies for the grants

Fund Development Committee
We will address the need for funds and resources to build the infrastructure for the new Downtown Open Space Park.

We realize it is necessary to get funds for the permit process as well as grading and landscaping to prepare for the phased building process.

We are asking for volunteers and interested community people who have a knowledge of grants and funding or a willingness to learn about this process.

We are encouraging everyone to offer their ideas, resources, and expertise. Join us, to make sure we get the best community park possible.
