Revitalization took center stage at the Oct. 28 Montross Town Council meeting.
The Town of Montross has been in the implementing stages of its half million dollar Community Development Block Grant it received from the state.
Of that amount, $80,000 has been dedicated to helping area businesses improve storefronts through facade improvement programs. Town Manager Brenda Reamy told the council most of the projects are completed, or very close to it. The only one that is not is the Napa building. It will be torn down and rebuilt. The building will look the same, so it still will qualify for the facade project.
