JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown City Council will hold its monthly voting session Monday night in city hall and will likely give its support to a request for state funding for five different projects in the city.
The state’s annual Consolidated Funding Application grant program is accepting applications until July 28. But because the next city council voting session isn’t until July 30, council members will vote on signing off on the application for the five projects tonight.
The five projects applying for funding support from the state include:
- Northwest Arena’s expansion of its Grapes and Hops Festival;
- Jamestown Renaissance Corporation (JRC) application for a New York Main Street Downtown Anchor grant to help rehabilitate the building 10-12 W. Second St;
- A study commissioned by the Gebbie Foundation and JRC to determine the cost of future renovation or demolition of the downtown Arcade Building on Main Street;
- An update of the city’s Urban Design Plan by the JRC;
- The development of a public piazza between Jefferson and Washington streets around Northwest Arena and the National Comedy Center.
Monday’s meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
