Great news for Newcastle parks! The Parks Capital and Open Space Grant Advisory Committee has recommended the CrossTown Trail at Lake Boren for an award of $500,000.00. We are excited about our partnership with King County Parks that supports their vision of Parks, trails, and natural lands for all, sustained with the cooperative efforts of our community. 
The award recommendations must first be approved by King County Council legislation. To initiate this process, the King County Executive has sent legislation to King County Council, who within the next couple of months will: 

Review the legislation, which includes the grant award recommendations 

Vote on funding allocations for the grants at a scheduled Committee/Full Council meeting 
Once Council passes legislation authorizing the grant allocations, King County Parks staff will inform Newcastle on the next steps for contracting and project implementation. 

Stay tuned for updates!
