Union Springs officials are making plans for projects that are receiving $563,950 in grants from the state, two projects for improving Frontenac Park and one to investigate improving the Cayuga Street area.
The funds were announced last month as part of the state's Regional Economic Development Council program.
One of the projects is for a boat launch at Frontenac Park on the shores of Cayuga Lake. This project was awarded $154,350 via the state Department of State's Local Waterfront Revitalization Program in order to to increase public water access and recreational activities on Cayuga Lake. The grant carries a 50-percent match requirement, which means the village has to contribute $77,175 to the project.
