Last night, at their regular monthly meeting, Huntsville councilors heard that the Huntsville BIA received grants that would help offset the costs of the new streetscape project currently underway.

In the winter of 2021, in partnership with the Huntsville BIA, town staff applied to the Rural Economic Development program for funding in regards to the Streetscape project.

The town was notified in May that the program would contribute $ 97,564.20 towards to the project.

The resources would be allocated to recycling stations, trees, public art and street furniture.  

The breakdown of the funds would see approximately $ 22,000 be directed to the BIA, and the remainder of the funds would be used to support capital expenses by the Town.
