Cascade Lake to receive major grant

Great news, the city secured a grant to further the work at Cascade Lake Regional Park.  We received a $391k out of a maximum or $400k!  Little by little we are finishing this park, the summer of 2015 we will see a completed loop around a quickly evolving park!

Good afternoon….

Some good new to share with the Park Board and Council.

We have been selected for funding through the Conservation Partner Legacy Grant Program in the amount of $391,389 for restoration of the northern shoreline of the Mayo Cell at Cascade Lake.  The estimated project costs are $550,000.   We were one of 14 state wide projects selected through this program which capped the grant amount at $400,000.  We received this grant with the professional assistance of WSB/McGhie & Betts.

While this is not a large grant compared to some which are received by the City.  This is a large grant in the parks world ….

Thank you for your support in our efforts to secure the funds.
