I received a call this morning from a local mayor. His community wishes to remove the asphalt they laid upon their courthouse square brick streets a few years ago. Additionally, they would like to repair and refurbish the underlying brick roads. This may be a total of 500 yards of roadway. They are curious if there is some source of funding assistance that might be available. Off of the top of my head I can only guess at the possible available funding sources. Iíve started to do some research, but I thought Iíd also ask our resident professional planners if you knew of any avenues I should explore (bad pun intended).
Iíve already got a call in to our DOT to explore the possibilities of using federal enhancement funds. Iím not very familiar with the Main Street program. Is this something that also might be of value? Is this project possibly eligible for historic preservation funds? Any suggestions for further research will be welcome.
