The Twisp Town Council will move forward in applying for a grant through Washington’s Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO) for the purpose of purchasing land for trail development.
The decision came during the council’s regular meeting held Tuesday, April 10th.
Town Clerk, Jackie Moriarty, says the council did not take the decision lightly, and even went into executive session before making the final verdict.
The Recreation and Conservation Office began in 1964, awarding more than $1.4 billion in grants to more than 6,400 projects to help build communities.
The Land and Water Conservation Fund provides funding to preserve and develop outdoor recreation resources, including parks, trails, and wildlife lands.
If Twisp receives the grant, funds would provide financial assistance for the acquisition and development of public trails and would require a 50 percent match from the Town of Twisp.
The Town Council will meet again at 7 PM on Tuesday, April 24th at the Twisp Council Chambers."CLICK HERE" for Audio
