Town of Parksley Downtown Revitalization Project: Get on Board!
The Town of Parksley received a Community Development Block Grant from the VDHCD. The purpose of the grant is to remove blight and to stimulate the economic revitalization of the Town of Parksley through façade rehab, pedestrian and other improvements to public spaces and infrastructure, and marketing/branding activities.
Specific contract activities include: façade improvements to approximately 20 buildings within the project area with building condition to be enforced by Town’s adoption of a minimum design and maintenance standard; construction of a Bandshell and Entertainment and Education area to support the public events and educational programs; improvements to two alleyways providing critical access between the Town Square, adjacent businesses, and the new regional library; development of a marketing and branding program to market the Town to potential businesses, customers, and tourists (marketing program is a component of the adopted economic restructuring plan); and redevelopment of the former Fresh Pride grocery store as the new Eastern Shore Public Library and Heritage Center. The total project cost is $2,870,750; DHCD’s portion is $700,000 in CDBG funds; private and local leverage equals $2,170,750.
