PARKS AND RECREATION
With Headwaters RDC assistance, the City has obtained
over 80% of the funds to construct the trail from outside
resources. They received a grant from the DNR for
$95,000 and through the MnDOT Transportation Enhancements
Program they were awarded funds for 80% of construction
costs, up to $246,960. Local groups within the City
also stepped up to the plate and helped raise a significant
portion of the remaining funds the City will need to fill
the remaining gap.
In the future the City hopes to secure funding to construct
the second and third phases of the system that will consist
of a loop in the southern half of the City and a trail
connecting the park on Blackduck Lake.
