The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) has opened a special fall round of funding. There is $ 38 million available statewide from the American Recovery Program (ARP). The application time frame is short, ending October 27th. The ARP money must be allocated before the end of the year.
A basketball court has been on the improvements list for the park for quite a few years. After an on-site review of the possible project, the DCNR grant specialist suggested applying for a multi-use court. The court would be constructed in the area of the current volleyball net.
None of this money can be used for road improvements, only recreational purposes.
A grant was submitted on October 27, 2022. The awards will be announced in the first quarter of 2023.
