ARPA Park Funding

The Beloit City Council has appropriated $2.25 million dollars of ARPA funding towards park improvement projects and $300,000 towards splashpads.  We are seeking the communities’ input on how best to allocate these funds.  Director of Parks & Recreation, Matt Amundson, will facilitate public input opportunities at the following dates, times and locations:

Wednesday, February 8, 2023      6:30 PM                     Grinnell Hall                            Public Input 2.8.23

Monday, February 27, 2023           6:30 PM                    Merrill School Gym

Every five years the City of Beloit updates or creates a new Open Space and Recreation Plan, this is often referred to as a Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan and is a requirement for DNR grant funding.
