$200,000 grant suspended until Shellmound issue resolved

Thursday, June 09, 2011

The Association of Bay Area Governments has suspended its $200,000 grant to develop a park in Vallejo.

The grant to the Vallejo Recreation District's Glen Cove and Bay Trail Project would have helped build a parking lot and restrooms on the site of an ancient Native American burial ground.

A group of Native Americans has been protesting at the site for the last 57 days.

The Association says its grant is on-hold until the cultural land use issues are resolved.
