FARMINGTON -- City leaders have approved an agreement with Davis County to use community development block grant (CDBG) funds to improve the facade of a historic building downtown.
The city council voted unanimously to approve the accord with the county to use $20,000 of CDBG funding to remove a metal facade on the Sessions building located at the northeast corner of State and Main streets and to restore the brick work where practical.
The city will provide $20,000 in matching funds for the project from the redevelopment agency. The agreement is still subject to approve from the County Commission. The county administers CDBG funds for the county.
The CDBG program is a federal initiative targeted at low to modern income residents.
