Recreational Trails Grants Available

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?

  1. How about trails in Highland Park as well?
