River Bluffs Regional Park
Develop outdoor recreation facilities including a nature study/observation area, roads and trails, information boards and signs. Park includes shoreline adjacent to the Mississippi Wild & Scenic River. The new trails will provide safety and accessibility along the bluff line overlooking the river and prevent erosion caused by existing, informal earthen trails.
$3970000 the first year and $4900000 the second year are for grants under new Minnesota Statutes section 85.535 to parks and trails recognized as meeting the constitutional requirement of being a park or trail of regional or statewide significance. Grants under this section must be used only for acquisition development restoration and maintenance. Of this amount $500000 the first year and $600000 the second year are for grants for solar energy projects. Up to 2.5 percent of this appropriation may be used for administering the grants.
