Foothills Field of Dreams – The LCN forged a partnership between Jefferson County School, businesses, Civic and the Neighborhood association leaders to raise $450,000 through grants and donations to restore a derelict elementary school sports field. Play is integral to learning and the restored field offers neighborhood connection options. This kind of partnership is being repeated to improve schools and positively transform neighborhoods in the city.
