Port Huron, Clay Township to receive half million dollars for parks


The City of Port Huron will be receiving $500,000 from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources for improvements to 16th Street Park. Known as a “Spark” grant, Port Huron is one of 21 other Michigan communities that will receive the funding. Port Huron Mayor Pauline Repp says the the funds will require a $50,000 local match. She says the city is pursuing other grants to help come up with the matching funds. Clay Township will also be receiving nearly a half million dollars in Spark grants. Those funds will be used for enhancing active play amenities. In Sanilac County, $393,000 will be used to renovate the Marlette Community Park.
