Greater Minnesota Regional Parks Get More Legacy Amendment Money

Clean Water Land and Legacy AmendmentUNDATED – Regional parks in greater Minnesota get a much bigger share of the Land and Legacy Amendment money over the next two years.  The bill that allocates the money was passed by the State Legislature this week during the special session.

Stearns County Parks Director Chuck Wocken says regional parks in outstate Minnesota will have about double the amount of money available, compared to the previous two years.  He says they’ll share about $14 million.

Wocken says regional parks in the Twin Cities will share about $31 million, and the DNR gets about $28 million over the next two years.

Money from the Land and Legacy Amendment comes from a three-eighths of one percent sales tax increase that voters approved back in 2008.
