JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown Downtown Revitalization Initiative local planning committee met Tuesday to continue the process on how to doll out $10 million in state economic development funding.
According to the Post-Journal, the day-long meeting was intended to help prioritize local projects eligible for the money and also narrow down the list.
Part of the day focused on learning more about the projects, with the remainder of the day used to help committee members further discuss each project.
According to the paper, the list of projects the committee discussed was narrowed to 15, which was done through feedback from the first two public community meetings held in November and December.
Projects include the National Comedy Center, the former Key Bank Building redevelopment, the Hilton DoubleTree Hotel on 4th Street, the Greater Jamestown Riverwalk, Reg Lenna Center for the Arts renovation project, the Jamestown Brewing Company development, and upgrades to the Lucille Ball Little Theater, Furniture Mart Building, and the Jackson Center.
The 15 projects have a total preliminary figure of more than $27 million.
The final public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 16.
