Congratulations to Upward Intuition and the Blake Doyle Community Park

We had another busy week on the Pensacola City Council, but with some good results. I am pleased that we were able to approve the final $200,000 for the Blake Doyle Community Park.

It is more than just a public skate park on an otherwise unused piece of land beneath Interstate 110. It is part of the larger Hollice T. Williams Park project. And when we talk about our plan to Build Pensacola, this is precisely what we mean — creative projects that benefit not just one neighborhood, but all of Pensacola.

I would like to offer my congratulations to Jon Shell and Upward Intuition, which raised a good portion of the funding, in addition to what the City is contributing. I have supported this endeavor from the beginning and am excited to see it come to fruition.
