Turtle Point Park

I can't find an online version of the latest edition of Gator Tales (Spring 2014), or I'd post it.  In addition to topics we've discussed before (the Rez Tags, the 2014 Independence Day Celebration, the new Rankin County office of the PRVWSD, ect.), there was the following article of interest:

New Turtle Point Park Under Design

     PRVWSD's new Turtle Point Nature Area Trail and Kayak Launch has entered the design phase and construction should begin later this year.  The project, to be built on the current Scenic Park location off Scenic Drive between the Turtle Creek and Forest Point subdivisions, was made possible by a federal recreational trails grant through the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks.  The grant will reimburse PRVWSD with federal funds equal to 80 percent of the cost of the park.

Here is an article from back in 2011 when the issue of turning this spit of land into a park first arose.

How much was the 20% contribution that PRV made to this park?
