TBEP provides funding for Safety Harbor park

The Tampa Bay Estuary Program has awarded the city a $70,000 matching grant to assist with wetland restoration and cleanup at Safety Harbor's planned waterfront park.

The funds will go toward clearing out trash, removing invasive plants, and planting sand cordgrass and mangroves. Commissioners last fall approved plans for the $1.75 million park, and city officials said work is expected to start in coming months.
