CAPITOLA ó The famed Rispin Mansion of Capitola has just gotten a major financial boost, a $383,925 state grant that will be used to fix up surrounding gardens and paths.

Since the six-acre site is owned by the City of Capitola, officials there plan to make up the rest of a $600,000 tab to restore the mansionís garden and redefine the property trails, Steve Jesberg, public works director, said.

The Mediterranean 1920s home, which has long been shuttered, is situated behind a towering wall off of Wharf Road and the property features a switchback trail that serves as a heavily used conduit for pedestrians and bicyclists between Wharf Road and Bay Avenue.
