We have heard from the community how much they value the downtown and would love a downtown square for gatherings, farmers markets, and more festivals and events in our city center. The Social Circle Downtown Development Authority has made this project their top priority to support the community vision. A concept plan has been developed, and a $100,000 USDA Rural Development grant identified to begin the creation of this downtown square.
Here is how you can help bring this vision to reality….
The USDA selection criteria will include an evaluation of broad community support for the project. Support can be in the form of letters of support, donations and work in kind.
The DDA is currently seeking letters of support from the community, civic groups and businesses. If you can write a letter of support to the Social Circle DDA it would be greatly appreciated and will help support our efforts to secure the funding grant.
Letter of Support Guidelines
The deadline for the grant request is March 17th. Letters will be accepted through March 16th.
Please address the letters to the Social Circle Downtown Development Authority and drop off, mail or email to City Hall.
Thank you for supporting this opportunity for our downtown. If you have questions please contact Adele Schirmer, Social Circle City Manager at 770-464-2380.
