Matching Grant to Replace Identity Signs APPROVED! 

Hello, members, friends and neighbors!

In the March 27, 2018 General Meeting, members were briefed that on March 13, 2018, GPPCA President Barbara Ellis signed our approved matching grant application! Grant author and GPPCA Director Danny White accompanied Ms. Ellis to the 'signing ceremony' at City Hall, Community Services Office. The signing culminates research and discovery work that began in April 2016. 

With this grant comes the duty to match the $14,400.00 that will be used to pay for the design, removal of the old and installation of the new signs, and the permitting associated with the five signs (Dr. MLK St at 54th Ave S; 4th St at Hillside Dr S; and Pinellas Point Drive at Roy Hanna).

This is where YOU come in! Along with your Board of Directors, and committed members, we can repay the grant through civic volunteer activities that take place from today through March 13, 2019. Qualified volunteer work is paid at $24.00 per hour... a very fair wage!   

To get us started toward paying our debt, here are three imminent volunteer opportunities that we can leverage and report in our matching grant accounting. To report your time AFTER you complete the work , please send an email to We will continue to send you qualified volunteer opportunities as they become available. 

Your support is GREATLY needed and appreciated!
