A few months ago the Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association (FSJNA) formed a committee to focus on repairing and restoring the Dumaine St. and Magnolia (Cabrini) bridges. The committee has made great progress, including securing support and funding from the Regional Planning Commission for a Feasibility Study regarding the Magnolia Bridge.
We are optimistic that we will be able to secure significant funding for this project, but the fact remains that we will still need to raise quite a bit of money on our own. Towards that end we would like to have established a solid fundraising strategy by the time the Feasibility Study is complete, and to get started on that we are convening a planning session:
Saturday, January 29th at the historic Pitot House (1440 Moss St.
1:00pm socializing; 1:30pm meeting)
This will be a targeted, focused planning session, and we ask that if you or your organization would like to take an active role in fundraising for our bridge restoration project. Please come out next Saturday and help us create a successful development plan!
