Wausau to seek $600,000 CDBG grant

The other $200,000 would go toward improvements at George Rogers Park, where the city hopes to renovate the playground, enhance the handicapped parking area, and renovate the restrooms, picnic facilities and baseball field. The recreation committee would also like to add additional playground equipment, a basketball court, additional parking at the Skateboard Park, an exercise trail and a covered picnic facility, as well as expand the Skateboard Park.

The next step in seeking the CDBG grant will be to advertise then hold a public meeting with the Citizens Advisory Task Force and the town’s engineering firm, Preble-Rish, to identify projects to submit. The deadline for the application is February, Fox said.

“The public input is an important part of the process,” Fox said. “They want to hear from the people and see that the public has had some say in what projects are chosen.”
