An effort to revitalize Main Street in Tremonton is in the early phases as the Tremonton City Council voted Tuesday night to allow Tremonton City Manager Shawn Warnke to apply for a grant that would help map out what needs to be done.
The Community Impact Board (CIB) grant is a state grant given to cities to help identify problems along main corridors and at entryways into cities. The grant would match the city’s contribution and would allow the city to hire someone with expertise in urban design.
“We want people with land and urban design,” said Warnke. “No one in the city has that expertise.”
The grant itself won’t be used to fix up Main Street but it will give the city a jumping off point to start planning and will prioritize ideas. Tremonton City agreed to match whatever the grant is, up to $20,000.
