SUMMARY
The City of Danville has received a $200,000 grant from the Virginia Outdoor Foundation CORE funds, for the purchase of 53.45 acres of property from the IDA to add to Anglers Park. 
BACKGROUND
In November of 2020, the City of Danville made application to the Virginia Outdoors Foundations CORE (Community Opportunities for Restoration and Enhancement) grant program for the purchase of property (53.45 acres) located at the end of Stinson Drive from the Danville IDA (Industrial Development Authority) for the expansion of Anglers Park, protection of forests and trails. Specifically, the grant calls for a trail head to connect to the Riverwalk Trail, Plant ID and a picnic shelter, in addition to the purchase of the property.  This grant requires the City to agree to an easement on the property that will protect the forest from deforestation. This grant requires no local match. 
 
$  97,875      covers acquisition, the plant ID program, survey, and appraisal; and
$102,125 is for improvements, paving, grading of the trail, picnic shelter and parking.
RECOMMENDATION
Staff recommends City Council approve Amending the Fiscal Year 2022 Budget Appropriation in the Amount of $200,000 for the purchase and development of 53.45 acres at Anglers Park.
