The Parklands of Floyds Fork project is getting a major financial boost.
The money was allocated to the state through the federal Transportation Enhancement program.
Humana founder David Jones, treasurer of 21st Century Parks, the non-profit overseeing the project,
says government and private donations now total more than $100 million, and the public phase of its fundraising campaign is still ahead.
“When we do go public with this, we’re going to build a nice base not only for finishing out the capital side of it, but raising money for an endowment,” he said.
