Staff-Recommended ARPA Spending Plan

Based on a six-month needs assessment, project review, and project prioritization process, staff has identified 20 projects that are being recommended to the City of Takoma Park City Council utilizing ARPA/SLFRF in the amount of $13,495,100. The Staff-Recommended Spending Plan is now available for public review and comment.

The Staff-Recommended ARPA Spending Plan (Spending Plan) was presented to City Council on January 12 during the regular session. Now, we want to hear from you!  Do you think the staff spending plan meets the needs of Takoma Park residents?  Do you have questions or thoughts on how the City should spend the ARPA funds?

We have several opportunities coming up for discussion and public comment and we hope you can join us.  See dates, times, and registration links below. For more information on upcoming public feedback opportunities, visit the City Council Upcoming Agenda page and the ARPA Webpage to learn more.
