Funding Denied

The  City of Magnolia’s request for funding improvements at East Side Park, has been declined by the State.

Mayor Parnell Vann said “The city is successful with other grants, but it seems that is not the case with Parks grants”

“I will visit with the (City Council) in the near future to see if they want to move forward with the city paying 100 percent of the project,” he said.

The Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage and Tourism announced more than $3.6 million in Outdoor Recreation Grants awarded to projects within 25 counties across the state. The city of Magnolia will now look to funding the project.
