White Bluff chosen for Tennessee Downtowns program
NASHVILLE (AP) — State economic development officials have chosen six communities -- including White Bluff -- to participate in the Tennessee Downtowns program.
Others communities chosen by the state Department of Economic and Community Development, are Clifton, Greenfield, Portland, Tracy City and Waynesboro.
The six communities are each home to downtown commercial districts established at least 50 years ago. The selection process was based on criteria including historic resources, economic and physical need and probability of success.
The department says the communities will each form a committee of citizens for training about sustainable downtown revitalization and historic preservation.
The training includes webinars, workshops and a $15,000 reimbursable grant to complete individualized downtown development projects.
