Grant Request for Community Park Expansion
Milwaukee, Wis. – The City of Lake Geneva has requested up to $250,000 in
federal matching grant funds, administered by the Department of Natural
Resources, to purchase a 13-acre addition to the local Veterans Park site
located on Townline Road.
The proposed purchase is supported in the City’s Park and Open Space Plan
and will provide public park land for the future development of additional
sports fields, paved courts, parking, and picnicking facilities at the
popular regional park site. Connection to the City’s local recreational
trail is also planned as part of this park expansion project.
This type of land acquisition project typically does not have the potential
to cause significant adverse environmental impacts; therefore, the
Department has made a preliminary determination that an environmental
analysis will not be required for this potential grant project.
Information regarding the Department’s grant determination can be reviewed
at the DNR Milwaukee office, 2300 N. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. Contact
Tom Blotz at (414) 263-8610 or Gene Park at (414) 263-8676. Comments on the
proposed grant project are welcome and should be submitted no later than
4:30 p.m. on Monday, September 22, 2003.
