Greenwood gets grant to study building facades

Greenwood has gotten its first grant toward giving downtown building facades a facelift.

The city can use the $40,000 grant from the Indiana Office of Community & Rural Affairs to hire HWC Engineering to make construction plans and work with local businesses to decide which buildings to include in the facade rehab program. The city also will apply for a $400,000 construction grant.

The buildings being considered for exterior repairs that could funded by the construction grant are limited to a four-block area around Main Street and Madison Avenue.
