Enliven the East Village of Davenport
Organized by: Andrea Olson
The East Village Preservation Society has a mission - enliven the east village in 2016-2017. Through our business recruitment efforts, we have seen a resurgence of new businesses come to fill empty buildings. Yet this is only the first step in our journey. We need your help! In our effort to continue to beautify and develop the Village, we have applied for an Iowa Great Places Grant, to support and fund major enhancements, including but not limited to: 1) Remodeling an existing structure for use as a Village Visitors Center, to provide historical information, walking tours and much more! 2) Installation of wayfinding signage to help visitors connect from key entry points, parking, the Mississippi river and downtown Davenport! 3) Development and installation of interpretive signage to connect the existing riverfront story to the historically significant Village, and to continue the story throughout! 4) Installation of additional Bike Racks and benches throughout the 11th street and 12th street corridors to encourage activity and pedestrian traffic And much more! To earn this grant, we need to raise MATCHING FUNDS! We are asking the friends, neighbors and supporting businesses of the Village to contribute to this important cause. With your help, we can raise enough money to continue the beautification and enhancement of the Village for years to come. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your donation is TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
