Grant being considered for Northside parkMay 15, 2020
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — The Huntingburg Park Board is considering applying for a $250,000 Land and Water Conservation grant to add a bicycling/walking path, outdoor playground feature and fishing pier to Northside Park.
The board will hold a public hearing at its meeting Monday evening before making its decision. The meeting is scheduled for 5:45 p.m. at the Huntingburg Old Town Hall at 309 N. Geiger St.
Northside Park is being developed on a stretch of land south of 19th Street and just west of the Huntingburg Street Department. When completed, it will include a playground, basketball court and a path that runs around the features and south near a pond. A parking lot will be located on the north end of the park and circular parking will be closer to the south end. Land for the park was donated by Boxer Girl, the company that has developed the Hunters Crossing subdivision.
The features being considered for grant funding are an approximately 515-linear-foot trail, a playground, benches, bicycle racks and a fishing pier. The cost for the items is estimated to be $500,000, $250,000 of which would be covered by the grant, if approved. The city would create the path, do the final seeding, provide two benches and four bike racks, and contribute local funding to cover its $250,000 match.
The Land and Water Conservation grant application is due to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources by June 1.
