Downtown revitalization gets another boost

Pender was among four communities in Nebraska to receive Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) for Downtown Revitalization Planning from the Northeast Nebraska Economic Development District. The Village of Pender was awarded $30,000 to be used for restoring and visually improving the downtown area. “It will increase property values, generate additional foot traffic increasing retail sales, and create a welcoming atmosphere that will encourage residents and visitors to utilize the downtown district,” NENEDD community planer Mandy Gear said. “In turn, there will be increased jobs and additional sales tax revenues, which will be positioned back into the community.” The village will be utilizing the funds to do a Main Street study to determine what needs to addressed to promote small town revitalization from the blocks spanning 1st to 5th Street.
