Port of HR In Line For Nichols Basin Trail Grant

It appears the Port of Hood River will receive a $450,000 grant from the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department for construction of a trail along the west edge of the Nichols Basin.  Port Commissioner Rich McBride says an advisory committee put the project fourth on a statewide list to receive funding, noting it is still subject to approval from the full parks department commission.  The Port already has a $125,000 grant for the project, and McBride says they are seeking another grant in the vicinity of $375,000  He adds the state parks grant will allow more grading work from the high water mark, some landscaping, and adding retaining walls.
