On Monday, August 19th, the City Council approved the City’s first Gateway Improvement Program Grant, awarding $11,900 to Funway Entertainment Center to help fund the purchase and installation of three new awnings along the building’s south-facing wall and improvements to the property’s parking lot and landscaping. The City established the Gateway Improvement Program, or GIP, in April this year for the purpose of assisting property owners and businesses in certain site and building improvements through awarding 50/50 matching grants up to $20,000. Commercial and light industrial properties located within 500 feet of designated downtown TIF Districts and/or along East and West Wilson Street, South River Street or North Washington Avenue may be eligible for GIP grants.
