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 will use this grant to complete phase II of the Roses Lake public access site located just north of Lake Chelan and the town of Manson. The scope of this project is to renovate existing pathways to shoreline fishing areas and upgrade three shoreline fishing areas to meet ADA requirements. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is increased access for shoreline fishing to all anglers.
