NEWS: Executive Constantine announces a combined $8.2 million for community-led projects that will offer recreational opportunities, provide access to open space, and restore river corridors
King County Executive Dow Constantine today announced two grant funds worth a combined $8.2 million for 37 community-led projects that will increase access to open space and parks, expand recreational facilities, and help protect and restore floodplain habitat.
The King County Council approved the plan to allocate both grants, which are funded by the voter-approved King County Parks Levy.
“These grants are investments in the places where friends and families gather today, and in better habitat for fish and wildlife tomorrow,” said Executive Constantine. “Just this year we’ve invested nearly $30 million in parks grants that will strengthen community partnerships, increase recreational opportunities, and preserve and protect the places that make this part of the world so special.”
