KNOW THY NEIGHBORS ... The City of Palo Alto's pilot neighborhood grants program has been inundated with applications, according to the city. The $25,000 program gives neighborhood groups up to $1,000 to fund events and projects that help foster a sense of community. Grant recipients have included a block party at Palo Verde Elementary School to build emergency-preparation kits, a week-long neighborhood camp in the Duveneck/St. Francis neighborhood ending with a block party, a Downtown North food-truck social at Johnson Park, and a crime prevention and safety fair in Leland Manor. Upcoming events include Palo Alto Yoga Day on Friday, June 21, at Rinconada Park, an Emerson Street block party on Sunday, June 23, and a summer social on June 29 in the San Antonio Road neighborhood. The city expects to have awarded all grants by mid-summer, with events continuing through the fall. More information is available by visiting the city's website at www.cityofpaloalto.org/neighborhoodgrant.
