Cheadle Lake to Riverview proposed trail

Purpose: 2018 Recreational Trails grant application to construct a trail connecting the Cheadle Lake trail to Riverview Park

Deadline for receipt of community emails/letters: Tuesday, June 12, 2018

We’re applying for another exciting trail improvement project, and we need your support! This grant will help us construct 450 feet of trail that will connect two existing trail sections. When completed, there will be a continuous trail from Weirich Drive at Cheadle Lake Park all the way north to Riverview Park. Future trails will extend this trail project to the north city limits.

We’re requesting funding from the Recreational Trails Grant Program (RTGP), administered by Oregon State Parks and Recreation (OPRD). The grant can provide up to 80% of the cost of the project. This is a wonderful opportunity to leverage the funds you have helped BLT raise by using 20% of local funds to bring in 80% of the cost of the project from outside funding sources.

Build Lebanon Trails and The City of Lebanon want to show the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) that the community supports the project and our trails in general, and to show OPRD that Lebanon is committed to the continued development of public trails in our community. Your letter or statement will be included with the grant application that will be submitted to OPRD on or before June 15, 2018.
