DMK Adopts Ruscelletto Park

DMK Associates, Inc. (DMK), a local civil engineering and surveying firm, has adopted Ruscelletto Park as part of the City of Venice’s Adopt-a-Park Program for 2019. Ruscelletto Park was DMK’s top choice for the program because the firm designed the park in 2008.

Participating in the City’s program is a natural choice for DMK, says Karl Kokomoor, President and CEO of DMK. “Our firm believes in building better communities and investing our time in this park supports that sentiment.”

DMK staff will be volunteering their time throughout the year to help maintain the park. “We are pleased to be involved with the maintenance of a project that we helped create,” says Kokomoor.
This is the first year for the Adopt-A-Park Program for the City of Venice, says Patricia Matero, the City’s program coordinator. “We love the background that DMK has with this park.”
