Meadows Foundation to Give Park and Rec $73,000 to Fund a Fund Development Director

I saw on the City Hall blog that Meadows Foundation is calling a morning press conference to announce a grant that will allow the budget-strapped Park and Rec Department to "bring in a director of development this fall to pursue grants and donations for the City of Dallas Park and Recreation needs including playgrounds, trails and park upgrades in all city neighborhoods." So I went over to the foundation's website for more info -- and, yup, there it is: $73,000 to the Dallas Parks Foundation "toward employing a fund development director." Meadows says, yup, that's the major gift, which is indeed a nice present. And: Now I don't have to go to a press conference.
