MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today announced a $100,000 grant that will improve the shoreline at Bay Beach Amusement Park by constructing a new, ADA-accessible shoreline walk.
Administered by the Department of Administration’s Wisconsin Coastal Management Program, this and previously announced coastal grants will be used by local, state and tribal governments, regional planning commissions, universities, and nonprofit organizations to assist with projects throughout Wisconsin.
“Everyone should be able to enjoy our state’s natural resources. This grant for the City of Green Bay means more opportunities for everyone to recreate and appreciate the beach at the Bay Beach Amusement Park, and I believe will be economically beneficial to the entire region,” said Gov. Evers.
The intergovernmental and private sector collaborations aided by the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program advance Wisconsin and regional Great Lakes priorities such as enhancing public access, sustainable use practices, community development and resiliency, fostering future stewards, and resource protection.
Gov. Evers, Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, and DOA Secretary-designee Joel Brennan will make additional grant announcements and presentations in the coming weeks.
