Big State Grant for Methuen's Arlington Neighborhood

Congratulations, and thank you, to Mayor Steve Zanni, Economic Development Director Bill Buckley, Under-Secretary of DHCD Aaron Gorstein, and of course Governor Deval Patrick for their support of and delivery of a grant to Methuen’s Arlington Neighborhood which will allow the much utilized Tenney Street Park to be refurbished. From the Eagle Tribune:

The city has been awarded a $188,000 state grant to upgrade the Tenney Street playground.

The money is from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The award was announced this week by Mayor Stephen Zanni and Aaron Gornstein, Undersecretary of the state’s Department of Housing and Community Development.

The grant will pay for a renovation that will upgrade the widely-used playground and make it handicap accessible.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to make this important investment in the Arlington Neighborhood,” Zanni said. “This grant gives Methuen the tools to make dramatic enhancements to this neighborhood for the benefit of residents both young and old.”
