Downtown Revitalization Project

By | Events

Our office was informed there is another phase of Downtown Revitalization (DTR) funding that we could apply for. The DTR Committee met and committed to pursuing this next phase. City Administrator, Joe Frei, shared our intentions with York’s City Council at the April 4 meeting. So, what does this mean for downtown property owners? It means there may be more funding available to assist those that were unable to take advantage of the first phase! You can review the guidelines and complete a PRE Application that will be used to accompany the city’s application for the grant funds.  Contact York Chamber’s office at 402-362-5531 for more information.  dtr packet
