WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - On Tuesday, Wichita Falls city council accepted a $500,000 grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to expand the Lake Wichita boat ramp to four lanes, add a boat dock, seawall, restrooms, and a sidewalk.
The total cost of the project is $666,240.
In June of 2016, they accepted a separate $500,000 grant from the TPWD for a boardwalk and other shoreline improvements.
That project's total cost is just under $1 million. The Lake Wichita Revitalization Committee will be responsible for matching both grants.
City leaders are encouraged by the process and ready to ramp up the efforts with a future bond issue.
