PArks - Entertainment - The Arts
Our city has a rich history and many great values. Sadly, like many small towns, we are being left behind by bigger cities and bigger money. The good news? It doesn't have to be that way. We are the heartland of America, and we can innovate, educate, and leave a better community for the next generation.
Urbana Wins wants to:
Improve our city parks to make them more beautiful and enjoyable for all residents. Some ideas for improving the city parks include:
Splash pad, a new/renovated pool
A “pollinators highway” for the beautification of the parks
Fitness trails and workout areas
Better utilization and expansion of the bike trail.
Cultivate entertainment programs and organizations so that we may all enjoy our city even more. Our team is currently looking into the following ideas:
An indoor playground and sports complex
New batting cages
Connect the city, businesses, churches, faith-based organizations, the schools, and the university to pool our resources and create a more desirable community.
Encourage the development of fine arts and theater by working with local non-profits to promote their projects and events.
Ultimately, we want to foster an environment that works for all the citizens of Urbana (regardless of income, sex, race, orientation, religion, or social status) and attracts new people to our quaint small town.
