visitors will see major improvements to the facilities at the City Lake (New
Reservoir) this year following a grant awarded through the Community Assistance
Program (CAP) grant by the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC).
Application for this
project took several years and involved many hours of engineering through
Allstate Consultants and City Staff planning and research, application for a
Clean Water Section 404 permit, and receipt of clearance from the State Historic
Preservation Office. The City was notified in January of the grant award.
The New Reservoir,
located south of Marceline and west of HWY 5 on Marceline Lake Avenue, will see
many improvements to include.
Covered Fishing Dock
Fish Cleaning Station
New Boat Ramp
New Restroom Facility
Larger Parking Lot
will be compliant with the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) standards.
The estimated project
cost is approximately $315,000, which covers engineering, labor and material.
This is a 75 / 25 grant in which 75% of the project is reimbursable by MDC and
25% is the City’s share, of which a majority will be the labor costs.
The project work will
be done by the Marceline Street Department and is expected to be completed in
early Fall of 2021.
