At this week’s meeting, the City Council approved its support for a $30,000 Maryland Heritage Areas Authority (MHAA) grant for the Lakeland Community Heritage .

This will require the City to provide the $30,000 cash match required from the Planning Department’s operating budget for matching funds.

This phase involves hiring an audio producer to develop the tour’s final narrative and audio content.

Phase I of the project involved developing new content for the tour in the form of photographs, gathering property records and maps, and conducting interviews. This FY2022 grant for $15,000, with a $15,000 cash match, is in the process of being closed out.
