On Tuesday, Aug. 23, Riverside County 3rd District Supervisor Chuck Washington asked his board of supervisors colleagues to approve the use of Community Improvement Funds to help several Idyllwild organizations — the Association of Idyllwild Realtors, Forest Folk and the Idyllwild Arts Foundation.

The realtors received $3,000 for play equipment to be installed at the Town Hall playground. The association will double this gift with another $3,000, which it received as the Placemaker grant from the National Association of Realtors. A minimum of $6,000 will be available for new playground equipment, but the association would like to augment that, according to Kathy Wilson of the AIR.

IAF was granted $2,500 for the Jazz in the Pines festival to supplant other funds donated for scholarships.

The local Forest Folk are the beneficiaries of a $2,000 grant to support its local shuttle service for seniors and the disabled living in the Idyllwild and Pine Cove neighborhoods.
