Riverside Park Conservancy Receives Grant for Park Management Technology from Booth Ferris Foundation
The Riverside Park Conservancy has received a $200,000 grant from the Booth Ferris Foundation for park management technology.
The Booth Ferris grant will help fund the project management software purchase and setup for better management of the park, which will help sustain a real time overview of park projects’ status. The funds will also be used to convert historical Excel data directly to maps and fund an manage general repairs.
The aim is that the project management system will help improve accountability for both the Parks Department and the residents of the Upper West Side. Real time tracking of projects and park information will help the Conservancy keep abreast of park operations at all times...
