$500K grant accepted for Tart Park

October 19, 2018

The Dunn City Council voted to accept a grant for $500,000 from the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources for improvements to Tart Park during the board’s regular meeting Tuesday night. The grant requires no match. The money was included in this year’s state budget. Dunn has already received a PARTF, or Parks and Recreational Trust Fund, grant for $375,000 with a city commitment of an additional $375,000. This brings the money for the phase one upgrades to Tart Park to $1.25 million. “We want to thank Rep. Davis Lewis for making sure this $500,000 was in the budget for his hometown,” Mayor Oscar Harris said. “That puts us in great shape to move forward with Tart Park. We really want a state-of-the-art park.”
