Grant township supports an application for a Natural Resources Trust Fund grant to help pay to redevelop the Hart-Montague Bike Trail State Park.
Grant Township has joined local governments in expressing its support of a application for a $300,000 for a Natural Resources Trust Fund grant to help pay for redevelopment of the deteriorating 22-mile Hart-Montague Bicycle Trail State Park.
But, the township board is concerned about how much it may have to pay in matching funds for the project which is expected to have a $3.6 million price tag.
The Grant Township board, at its meeting last Tuesday, voted to submit a letter of support for an application which must be submitted by an April 1 deadline.
The application is being made by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) which owns the state park.
The Oceana County Board of Commissioners and the City of Hart have already approved letters of support.
Anne Hardy, executive director of the Oceana Economic Development Corporation, presented the project to the township board and requested the letter of support.
