At Monday evening’s Trigg County Fiscal Court meeting, magistrates unanimously approved a grant application through the Pennyrile Area Development District that will help the Friends of Lake Barkley State Resort Park develop the trail.
“It’s a 50-50 match grant. There is a little bit of concern, I think, not a lot, but a little concern, that we’ll be able to raise that total 50-50 match,” said Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander. “I think any in-kind work that we can do will go toward that, to help ease the burden of that 50-50 match.”
Ashley Johnson with PADD said the organization is looking for $85,977 to help finance the trail, which will be accessible for everyone, regardless of disability or handicap, and will be located near the LBSRP Fitness Center.
