There was an announcement today by the state of Kentucky that the Recreational Trails program awarded grants to 25 local governments and non-profits around the state. According to the program details,
"RTP grants may be used to provide assistance for acquisition of easements, development and/or maintenance of recreational trails and trailhead facilities for both motorized and non-motorized use. Examples of trail uses include hiking, bicycling, in-line skating, equestrian use, off-road motorcycling and all-terrain vehicle riding."
The Governer's Office for Local Development has a Recreational Trails program that is funded by the Federal Goverment's Highway Administration. The maximum grant amount is $100,000 and would surely be put to good use in Tower Park.
According to the announcement there were no Campbell, Boone, or Kenton County winners and I wonder if the city applied for these funds. How would you spend the funds on Tower Park if the city were to apply for the funds?
