State Rep. Sue Allor today helped advance plans to fund improvements to an Alcona County park.
Allor, of Wolverine, voted in favor of the Natural Resources Trust Fund plan approved by the Michigan House.
The plan includes $108,700 to aid in the development of a canoe/kayak launch, fishing platform, paved handicap accessible parking and signs at Alcona Township Park, located at the mouth of the Black River. Approximately $46,700 in local matching funds will also be provided.
“The improvements will give local families a new opportunity to get outside and enjoy the scenic beauty and abundant natural resources our area has to offer,” Allor said. “It’s always nice to see our hard-earned tax dollars coming back home.”
Overall, the DNR Trust Fund plan includes nearly $50 million for 131 recreational development and land acquisition projects across Michigan. The funding is comprised of revenue from the lease of state land and is designated on an annual basis in partnership with local governments for the projects.
Senate Bill 883 advances to the governor for consideration.
