City Seeks Public Input Before Applying for State Grant to Bolster Downtown

The city will soon apply for $10 million in funds under the state’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative program and is seeking public input to help shape that submission.

The program, which started in 2016, is intended to transform downtown neighborhoods into vibrant centers that offer a high quality of life and are magnets for redevelopment, business, job creation and economic and housing density and diversity. The state encourages compact, walkable downtowns as a way to rebuild the economy from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as achieve the state’s climate goals by promoting the use of public transit and reducing dependence on private vehicles.

The city has created a brief survey here and asks for your input by Friday, Sept. 15, to aid in this application process.
