Historic Grants Help Neighborhoods

A while back a new grant was introduced to help owners of historic homes to restore them by offering matching grants of up to $2,500. The major requirement was that it was an exterior project so the neighborhood would benefit from it, and be historic in nature. It was a 50% matching grant. Click here for the full RGJ article. I think it's a great program for small projects that really beautify these older neighborhoods.

Tour Reno's Little Theater

Reno Little Theater is offering the public free tours of its new facility and 99-seat theater Sundays on Oct. 23 and Nov. 13 and 27. The theater is located at 147 E. Pueblo St. in Reno, between Wells Avenue and South Virginia Street No reservations are required. The tours will begin every 20 minutes starting at 2 and ending at 5 p.m.

Roof on the Bus Stop

The roof is taking shape at some of the bus stops. The bus stop under construction closest to me has kind of a curvy roof to it. They seem kind fo shallow, not a lot of depth to them, it will be interesting to see what the finished product looks like. These are intended for the new articulated RAPID buses.
