Perris using Clean California Grant to pay for park upgrades

Perris has received a $2.8 million grant from the state that it will use to upgrade one of its parks.

The funding from the Clean California Grant program will pay for improvements to Copper Creek Park, including a walking path, picnic shaded tables, a butterfly garden with educational signs and  public art pieces to a statement on the city’s website.

Improvements will also be made to the park’s irrigation and landscaping in order to improve efficiency and water conservation, and an underground drainage system will be installed.

“We are grateful to receive this grant funding from the state to implement much needed upgrades to Copper Creek Park, a park with so much recreational potential,” said Community Services Director Sabrina Chavez in the statement.
Clean California was started by Caltrans last July. The $1.1 billion program include litter abatement projects, beautification and safety efforts and public education campaigns, according to the statement.
