The core downtown area, for purposes of the grant program, is bordered by Galena Street to the south, Pioneer Drive to the north, Meals Avenue to the east, and Hazelet Avenue to the west, and along the Richardson Highway from Meals Avenue to Crooked Creek. Properties must also be current on City property taxes to be eligible for the grant program.
