I am happy to write a first draft of these (I have already looked at the grant apps & requirements), but the grant apps require a detailed description of a specific project, as well as a cost breakdown. 

We need to figure out:  1)  what project we want the $ for; 2) timeline on the project; 3) how much we want; 4) how we are going to use it (i.e. renting a ditch witch, hiring IMBA crew, etc.); and 5) ensure that all approvals with DNR and/or DCP are in place and that if for new trail, it is included in the DCP master plan.  Also note that the funding priorities are for trail maintenance first.

They won't just give us $5000 for unspecified "trail maintenance"

We can discuss more at the meeting.   We should add this as an agenda topic

That all sounds good, also sounds like you got it under control, that's good and thanks.  If you want a proofread or me to write anything just let me know, I am a writer.  I won't be able to make the meeting but do have a thought that this may be a nice shot to knock out a new trail build like in dawley park.

+1 on Dawley Park.  I don't know where we are with approvals/trail plan though.

If we need a project that is approved and all that good stuff. Pleasantview is in need of an almost total rebuild and about 100 ft of new trail.  That is also "kid friendly" and the first building goal after logistics are fixed is a dedicated beginner area.  Hansi with imba is already I know backs the place as well.  There is a bunch of public trail in the works that will go there too.  With more than the city money and corp backing that place could be a finished product by the end of the summer.
