Luther Burbank Waterfront Ranks Well for Funding

The City's applications to the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP) and Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account (ALEA) both received rankings that put them in position to be funded by the Washington State legislature. The WWRP application ranked second out of four in the Water Access category and the ALEA application ranked seventh out of ten. Together, these two grants would provide two million dollars for waterfront improvements.

The next step is for the Recreation and Conservation Funding Board to recommend the project listings to the governor at its October 25 meeting. If that goes as planned, then the projects may be included in the Governor's proposed 2023-2024 budget in December. The legislature passes the budget in April/May 2023, and if all goes well the funding becomes available in July 2023.
