At the end of the Oskaloosa City Council meeting on Monday night, city manager Michael Schrock announced the city had been awarded $450,000 grant from the Iowa Economic Development Authority.

The grant, which will be matched with $252,000 of city money, and $174,000 from property owners, will fix up 6 properties that contain 12 facades.

Andrew Jensen with the City of Oskaloosa said, “We expect to be working through the design, environmental assessment, and historic preservation considerations through the fall and winter, with the expectation that the City will be putting the project out for bid in Spring 2019. This is an exciting project for the community and represents approximately $876,000 in additional investment in our historic downtown. It’s important to recognize that this project is a collaborative effort between the City, Main Street Oskaloosa, Area 15 Regional Planning Commission, Curtis Architecture & Design, and the property owners.”
