Splash Pad makes list of Park District projects 

KEWANEE — When the state opens a second round of grant money for community infrastructure, the Kewanee Park District wants to be ready. 

At the last park board meeting, Executive Director Andrew Dwyer provided the board with a list of potential projects that could be included among the applications made to the Rebuild Illinois — funding that is to be used to accelerate shovel-ready projects in underserved communities across the state. The capital program has already allotted millions of dollars from the Fast-Track Public Infrastructure Capital Program for development projects that support economic development. 

Dwyer told the board that while he isn’t sure when the state will open up the second round of grant applications, he is already beginning to compile prices and quotes for various projects.
