Town Gets $50k State Planning Grant
April 8, 2009 - Indiana Lieutenant Governor Becky Skillman recently awarded Union City with a $50,000 planning grant the city will use to fund the development of a downtown revitalization plan. The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs administers planning grants through the Small Cities and Towns Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.
“Planning grants are invaluable tools that can help rural communities improve the quality of life for their residents,” said Lieutenant Governor Skillman. “I’m pleased to award this grant to Union City. It’s exciting to partner with you, and to recognize your commitment to your community.”
The study will assess existing building façades, parking issues, and retail business development in the downtown area. Items also incorporated in the study include: street and sidewalk improvements, street lighting, infrastructure needs and other issues facing the downtown community.
The CDBG grant program has proven to be an effective tool for community-based planning and research initiatives that improve local quality of life and economic opportunities.
