Gering applies for grant to spruce up downtown

Posted: Updated:

Downtown Gering may soon receive some upgrades if the city is awarded a grant.

The Gering City Council is applying for a $30,000 grant for the second time.

The first time the city applied it wasn't selected.

Twin Cities Development representatives say this grant involves a different pool of funds that isn't as competitive and will give Gering a better chance.

The planning grant money would be used to bring in someone to focus the merchants and city government's ideas.

"It seemed that the overriding concern is that there aren't enough retail stores in Gering. The other one they said was pretty high on the list was restaurants."

The grant would also go toward improving building facades and infrastructure.
