Edinburgh receives grant to promote downtown investment

Edinburgh has been chosen as one of five communities around the state to receive a grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs to promote Downtown Development Week.

Downtown Development Week started last year and will be held the week of October 7th to honor cities and towns’ commitment to preserve and invest in their downtowns, according to the agency.

Edinburgh received a $1,000 grant for its plans to hold six days of special events in the downtown business district during the harvest season.

Other cities receiving grants are Bedford, Jeffersonville, Knightstown and Monticello. Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch made the grant announcements yesterday.
