|City Of Lewisburg Recieves Grant Money To Repair Pool At Recreation Center|
NASHVILLE – Gov. Bill Haslam and Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Commissioner Bob Martineau today announced more than $6.6 million to fund local parks and recreation projects across Tennessee.
“Maintaining and improving our parks and recreation areas helps provide healthy ways for Tennesseans to get out and enjoy their neighborhoods and communities,” Haslam said. “We want to continue to make our state an even better place to live, work and raise a family, and projects like these are key to making that a reality.”
The Local Parks and Recreation Fund grant program was established by the General Assembly in 1991 to provide local governments with funds to purchase land for parks, natural areas, greenways and recreational facilities. The funds also may be used for development of trails and projects in parks, natural areas and greenways. All LPRF grants require a 50 percent match by the recipient.
Grant recipients were selected through a scoring process with careful consideration given to the projects that met the selection criteria and expressed the greatest local recreation need. To learn more about the LPRF grant program and other recreation or conservation-based grant programs available in the future, please visit www.tn.gov/environment/recreation/grants.shtml.
The City of Lewisburg has been awarded $50,000 to renovate the outdoor concrete public pool at the Lewisburg Recreation Center. This grant will pay to remove the existing PVC membrane, prepare and replace with new PVC membrane system.
