Downtown Revitalization Planning Grant Approved

Stanardsville has been awarded up to $35,000 in Planning Grant funds by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) to prepare a comprehensive Business District Revitalization grant due in March, 2016.   DHCD notified Mayor Gary Lowe in October that the data and surveys submitted by the Town, as required, “demonstrated an acceptable preliminary level of interest and need in developing plans for the proposed project.”  The $35,000 it is making available to the Town is for “developing solutions to the identified needs” to help revive the downtown business district.  Next step is a Planning Strategy meeting, led by a DHCD facilitator, with Stanardsville’s Management Team to develop a work plan on the activities that need to be accomplished and by when.  That meeting will take place on November 19.  Click here for press release
