In less than two weeks, the Minnesota Legislature will reconvene, and although the second half of the biennium is shorter, it will likely be another busy session. Because it is not a budget year, the Legislature will be focused primarily on the bonding bill and policy issues. For GMPT, we have several priorities for 2024. We would like to see more funding for the DNR’s local park and trails grant programs and will be pushing for the inclusion of such funds in the bonding bill.
Calling all GMPT members!
Do you have a park or trail in your community or region that you are particularly proud of and want to share? Did you find a creative way to finance or partner with others to complete a project? Do any of your parks or trails have unique features or aspects that others could learn from?
If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, we would like to feature your park, trail or project in a future edition of our monthly newsletter and on our website! If interested, please email us at email@example.com.
