In February 2022, the City of Palmdale was awarded a $1 million in Los Angeles County Measure A Competitive Grant Program funding under the Regional Recreation Facilities, Multi-Use Trails and Accessibility grant program for the Marie Kerr Park Pool facility expansion. Funding was part of over $26 million in funds distributed to improve parks and open spaces across Los Angeles County. It marks the completion of the first-ever cycle of three competitive grant programs from Measure A, a parcel tax that was passed by voters in 2016.
Scope of Work
The funds will be used to expand the pool deck capacity for bleachers and gatherings, add additional entrance and exit routes, provide ADA compatibility, and improve connectivity to the adjacent recreation center.
