About this grant

This grant to the Friends of Berston will support the purchase of blighted property adjacent to the historic Berston Field House. The grant also provides funds for abatement and demolition of the structure located on the property and the removal of an underground tank. The project will eliminate blight and increase opportunities for future productive use of the property, which could include green space or an outdoor recreation area operated by Berston Field House.
