Iowa Board To Discuss Grant For Bible-Themed Park

May 24, 2014, 5:11 PM

Iowa Board To Discuss Grant For Bible-Themed Park
SIOUX CITY, IA -

The board of directors of an Iowa economic development group will meet next month to discuss concerns over a state grant awarded to help create a Christian park in Sioux City.

Vision Iowa board will meet June 11 to discuss whether it should take any action after the Freedom From Religion Foundation, of Madison, Wisconsin, complained about funding the Christian-themed park with public money.

The group says the $140,000 grant to The Shepherd's Garden violates the U.S. and Iowa constitutions.

Iowa Economic Development Authority spokeswoman Tina Hoffman has said the state grant money would pay only for green space at the park and not for any of the project's religious elements.
