At this Tuesday’s Council meeting, Eric Olson Executive Director, the Executive Director or the College Park City University Partnership (CPCUP) will make their annual presentation highlighting the progress they have made over the past year.
Together with its partners, CPCUP is administering $400,000 in grant funded projects. A couple of their accomplishments include:
- A grant CPCUP was awarded supported the new façade at the ArtHouse + Milkboy, which is expected to open in Spring 2017.
- CPCUP’s Homeownership Program for City and University employees continues to stabilize neighborhoods, with 17 families using the program to date.
- The College Park Safety Ambassador Program, which now has 15 safety ambassadors on staff, is active and on patrol within the community, in the downtown area.
- Ground was broken for a new College Park Academy in the Research Park in Riverdale Park, just outside of College Park’s boundary
