Michael J. and Mary Meech Mungo Park Bridge Restoration
Keep the Midlands Beautiful has received a 2019 Keep America Beautiful® Community Restoration and Resiliency Fund (CRRF) grant in the amount of $20,000 to support Keep the Midlands Beautiful’s effort to restore the washed-out bridge that once connected 116 acres of green space at the Irmo Chapin Recreation Commission’s Michael J. & Mary Meech Mungo Park, formerly known as Rawls Creek Golf Course, after the Thousand Year Flood in 2015. The grant provided to Keep the Midlands Beautiful is being used to replace the bridge in order to reconnect the park and decrease litter, illegal dumping, and crime in the area.
Feasibility Study by the Central Midlands Regional Planning Council
As of July 2019, the Central Midlands Regional Planning Council is in the process of completing a feasibility study that will qualify the project for potential federal funding to support our efforts for beautification, neighborhood stabilization, and economic development along the Greenway.
