Fayette Historic State Park to receive $1M for preservation

Fayette Historic State Park in Delta County is among 11 state parks to receive funding for improvements and upgrades from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Fayette received $600,000 and $400,000 to launch the first and second phases, respectively, of their historic townsite preservation project.

“Michigan’s state parks and recreation system has experienced a 30 percent increase in visitation over the past two years, while at the same time dealing with more than 20 years’ worth of critical infrastructure needs,” said Ron Olson, chief of the DNR Parks and Recreation Division. “There’s no question this is a historic investment. It will enable us to rehabilitate numerous infrastructure assets in state parks and along the state’s paved and natural surface trail system, and help the DNR better position our facilities to accommodate current and future recreation trends and welcome new generations of parkgoers.” Read more here.
