Investments & Grants
The Madison Parking Lot project was made possible through the initial land transfer by council to the Parking Authority and the result is a $51 million investment by a private company in combination with $2.5 million in grants with the promise of more.
Through that we make
significant progress on the Liberty Trail, we get the Skate Park that
has been on the back burner for years, a public gathering place, a
police kiosk along with high end apartments and retail.
A Destination for Work & Play
All of this gives our downtown the greater promise to be a destination
for work and play. This is affirmed by the latest information from the
County Comprehensive Planning process that states: “redevelopment and
infill is still intensifying; most places are becoming mixed use
and…..apartments are hot!”
