RE: Beluga Slough Trail Reconstruction
Authorization to Accept/Appropriate Funds
The City Council approved Resolution 09-50, expressed its support for a grant application to the Alaska Coastal Impact Assistance Program to reconstruct approximately 850 feet of the Beluga Slough Trail. The State of Alaska (Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development) has awarded a grant to the City of Homer for the Beluga Slough Trail Reconstruction project in the amount of $448,116.
The City’s grant condition responsibilities have been met (design of the project is complete using HART funds, existing trail removal scheduled for later this summer by volunteers/Parks and Recreation staff).
Construction of this project is expected to begin in early September. The project will be complete by October, 2012.
Recommendations: The City Council pass an ordinance accepting and appropriating a CIAP grant from the State of Alaska (DCCED) for FY 2012 in the amount of $448,116.
