Name of Project: Conex Container for Tractor Storage

Contact: ???????Trapper Creek community Services Association, Inc.

Address: ???????PO Box 13049, Trapper Creek, Alaska 99683



Brief description of the project: What is your proposed project? Please describe it.

TCCSA has utilized the Conex at the park for about five years for storage and lately housing the tractor and implements. Don Shaw has generously allowed us to use his container during this time, but in June 2014 he will be moving it from the park to his place. This leaves the park without a safe place to store the tractor. This is a proposal for $5500 for purchasing a suitable 10? x 40? Conex container, moving it to the park, and preparing a location for setting it up in a new location.

Who, why and approximately how many people in our community will benefit from completion of this project?

Secure storage would help to ensure the safety of the community?s investment in a John Deer 1026R tractor and implements for the maintenance of Trapper Creek Park and Cemetery

?? Is there evidence of public support for this project? If so, please attach.

The community has a vested interest in storing the tractor in a secure place.

Project Budget: Please provide project budget figures. Provide supporting documentation.

A general call around indicates that 10? x 20? Conex containers now cost around $4500 with transportation to the park an additional $500. We estimate $500 for preparing a location for setting up the container, which will involve dirt work and additional gravel. The total budget for a suitable container would be $5500.

Will this project provide economic benefits to the community? If so, please explain.

An investment in storage for the tractor would prevent theft and ensure that the tractor is out of the weather.

Please provide an estimated time schedule for completion of the project if funding is received.

Should this proposal get community approval, a Conex container would be purchased in June 2014.
