From Wendy Stokes:
Here is some very good news! We have just learned that were successful in obtaining the GOCO grant to rebuild the Town Square! Vic and I went to Lyons this morning to hear the GOCO Board accept the committee’s nominations for 14 Flood Reconstruction Grants including ours.
Jamestown’s project is valued at $227,000 (this includes a GOCO award of $117,000 and FEMA match for a lot of the rest including removal of debris and replacement with dirt/fill/sod etc). We will have a poster board showing the planned project for the Town Square in the Town Office for everyone to look at soon.
We have two years to complete this project and are aiming to do the bulk of it in the spring of 2015. Many thanks to everyone for their input on this project. We will bring back our beautiful Town Square!
