The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.
The Department of Fish and Wildlife use will this grant to develop a new water access site on Lake Tahuya, the third largest lake in Kitsap County, where no public access currently exists. The scope of this project is to provide new parking spaces, kiosk, fencing, signage, entry gate, a vault toilet, and a new boat launch for hand-carried style boats like prams, kayaks and canoes. The primary recreational opportunities provided by this grant are fishing, wildlife viewing, and water access.
