Downtown Statesville has a chance to WIN $25,000 in cash and related prizes to help revitalize Downtown. But we can't do it without YOU! The support we have seen already has been phenomenal, but we have a long way to go. Please continue to keep voting each day until April 22. We are competing against much larger cities, so we need the repeat voters in order to stay in the running!
Many have asked what we plan to do with the money if we win. While our Board of Directors has not discussed the "what if we won" scenario, our focus is always on projects that would encourage rehabilitation of Downtown property to help spur more development. We also look for ways to enhance the physical and visual assets in downtown and celebrate our historic character. If we are awarded those funds, we will begin the process of determining the best way to spend it.
