Neighborhood Enhancement Projects: Call for Proposals

In anticipation of a new round of NEP funding from the Town of Irondequoit, Eagle Heights is soliciting proposals for the projects for 2019. Here’s what we need:

  1. A brief description of your idea. Include photos and approximate costs.
  2. A paragraph explaining why your idea is important.
  3. A paragraph explaining the proposed benefits of your project.

Projects last year ranged from $500- $7500. For 2018 we asked for street toppers which were approved by the town and should be going up around our boundaries shortly.

Send completed proposals to our inbox, contact@eagleheightsna.org by August 16, 2018.
