Summit Lake Getting State Funds
July 30, 2008 - Summit Lake State Park’s campground and park improvement projects can move forward with $100,000 in new funds approved today by the State Budget Committee, according to State Sen. Beverly Gard (R-Greenfield).
An additional $25,000 of the property’s $75,000 annual General Rehabilitation allotment will be given to the state park. Gard said heavy use of public areas is why funding for maintenance is needed and she supports the revitalization projects.
“Our state park is a point of pride for Henry County and I support the Department of Natural Resource’s efforts to ensure the park continues to be a destination area for visitors and local residents,” Gard said.
Gard said improvements to the area include:
* $40,000 to move forward with roof repairs to picnic shelters, the office-service area complex, the beach house and the campground gatehouse;
* $20,000 to install stone to stabilize the shoreline near the boat ramp;
* $10,000 to paint and stain facilities throughout the park; and
* $5,000 to repair lift and control system problems.
Sen. Gard Represents Senate District 28, which includes Hamilton, Hancock and Henry counties.
