The Local Parks and Recreation Fund (LPRF) is a statewide grant problem with funds provided by the Real Estate Recordation Tax Collection. LPRF is a division of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.
Parks and Recreation Director Brenda Lockhart prepared the grant and also prepared the foundation for receiving the grant by the Comprehensive Park Plan, Benchmarking Certification and excellent administration of past grants.
The letter to Mayor Carmichael indicates the grant will not start until at least February of 2011, so the actual work will not begin until an estimated Fall of 2011.
