On October 14th, the Anoka County Board approved the legacy grant agreement for the parks and trails. This grant will provides more than $1.2 million in funding for six projects. Due to the approval of the constitutional amendment in 2008, this funding has come from the increase in state sales tax.
The county doesn't have to match the grant and they get until June 30th of 2017 to finish the projects. This program will allow the county to replace and repair infrastructure much easier and faster.
The County will complete the following projects with the funding:
- Constructing a portion of trail between 38th Avenue in Andover to Round Lake Boulevard - Cost $50,000
- Patching, crack sealing, drainage improvements, repaving and seal
