City Proceeding With Grant For $1.4M Park Project

Given the green light by the Crookston (Minn.) City Council’s Ways & Means Committee, the final tweaks are being made in the city of Crookston’s grant application that, if awarded, would greatly expand and enhance the campground facilities in Central Park, according to the Crookston Daily Times.

As of now, the estimated project cost is $1.382 million. That includes $410,000 for roadways and RV gravel pads, $110,000 for a water main and related services, $350,000 for a lift station/sanitary sewer, $62,000 for electrical services, and $450,000 for a new bathhouse/storm shelter. The city match is $345,500.

The council is expected to approve the final grant submission resolution at its July 23 meeting.

The grant is being submitted as part of the city’s partnership with other cities along the Red Lake River known as the Red Lake River Corridor Enhancement Group. The city included an expanded Central Park RV Campground in its previous grant application to the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission, but that portion of the grant was not funded.

Instead, the city received around $200,000 for several enhanced and increased river access points for kayakers, etc., along with increased signage along the river trail.
