Revitalize Downtown Stayton is the recipient of a $200,000 Main Street Revitalization Grant from the State of Oregon. This project is funded in part by the State Historic Preservation Office, Oregon Main Street Revitalization Grant, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
This block was identified in particular because it is a central block of Historic Downtown Stayton, has buildings significant to the community such as the City Hall, Police Dept, Star Cinema, and major retail space. All of the property owners were already involved in improvement projects, and had the means to provide the required financial match. This grant will bring seven buildings mostly to exterior completion.
The grant will allow this significant work to proceed, with the hope that it will spark further revitalization efforts in Historic Downtown.
RDS will supervise the project and ensure compliance with State requirements per the grant.
