South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District director meets with state representatives

South Whidbey Parks and Recreation Director Doug Coutts met with Island County state representatives to update them on grant monies related to the district’s proposed campground.

Coutts informed representative Dave Hayes, R-Camano and representative Norma Smith, R-Clinton on where the district fell on the Recreation and Conservation Office’s priority list to receive approximately half a million dollars in grant monies. The amount of money the district receives from the grant depends on where it ranks among other grant applicants.

The district’s application was ranked 34th out of 77 applicants, indicating that money is likely.

Coutts said he also updated the representatives on how much money the district will likely need for the proposed campground. He added both Hayes and Smith were supportive of the project.
