An informational meeting and forum is being held in Ogallala this evening (Tues) with regards to the downtown revitalization project.
The committee in charge of Ogallala’s downtown revitalization grant is hosting the meeting with downtown retailers and building owners at the Prairie Theatre at 5pm.
The Ogallala Revitalization Committee says this is a chance to bring people with a direct interest in downtown together to bring them up to speed on the process of revitalizing the downtown area. They said it’s also a chance to gather input as the committee chooses a direction for the look of downtown.
The city has obtained more than $300,000 in grant money from the state department of economic development to be used to revitalize the downtown area. Along with a closed in parking lot and a spruced up alleyway, many businesses will likely get some façade changes to help the downtown’s appearance.
