The Tulare County Association of Realtors has given $2,400 to a group of parents, teachers and church members working to build a neighborhood park at Houston Elementary School in north Visalia.

Association members will later volunteer at the site too, said Brett Taylor, the Realtor group’s new executive officer.

Taylor, who was the agency’s government affairs officer, replaced Mimi Ruby who resigned this month. Ruby has been the agency’s top officer since 2013.

The association received money from a “Placemaking Micro-Grant” through the National Association of Realtors to help nonprofits complete projects that enhance the community they conduct business in.

“Our Realtors and affiliates understand that this park is a necessity for the area and that it will allow local children to have a place to play and enjoy time with their families,” the association said in a news release.

The Houston Neighborhood Park is a public-private project of Neighborhood Church and Visalia Unified School District on about 2.5 acres of district property next to the school.
