Marine Board Approves Grant for City of Warrenton
For Immediate Release -4/13/12
The Marine Board approved a boating facility grant for the City of Warrenton to pave the overflow parking area at Hammond Marina.  The Marine Board approved the grant at its quarterly Board meeting on April 11, in Springfield.
Hammond Marina is a popular launch site on the Columbia River in Clatsop County. It is the closest access point to Buoy 10 and during fishing season the parking area is packed with trucks and boat trailers. Currently the parking area is gravel. Paved parking with striped stalls will improve the maneuverability and make the parking area safer and more efficient.
The City of Warrenton was awarded $250,000 in state boater funds, which will be combined with a $100,000 cash match from the city as well as $5,300 in in-kind funds. The projected total cost is $355,300.
