Park district meets today to discuss tough position


Last updated 6/22/2022 at 11:02am

The Coulee Area Parks and Recreation District, which manages North Dam Park, is meeting tonight, June 22, at 6:30 p.m. at the former middle school in Grand Coulee in the former teachers’ lounge. 

The group is in a tough position as they haven’t secured funding from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, which owns the land at North Dam, for 2022, which means they can’t fund maintenance at the park such as watering the grass, garbage service, powering the lights, and general yard work. 

Commissioner Kevin Portch told The Star last week that the group has applied for funding for 2023, but that there is additional paperwork still required. 

There is one vacant commissioner position within CAPRD, and Portch said someone that is familiar with grant writing would be the ideal candidate.
