The grant will help Strand Hardware fund their project of acquiring and demolishing a neighboring building making way for a new parking lot for their business. Along with providing more parking for their business, it will be utilized to display merchandise outside as it will no longer be allowed within MnDOT right-of-way after the street project. This will help alleviate some of the downtown parking issues as well.
Amy Baldwin with OTC CDA is an extremely valuable resource for small cities like ours and makes the grant process straightforward and simple to navigate. Thank you to OTC CDA and Strand Hardware for investing in Pelican Rapids! – Administrator Roisum
