RIVER RIVALS MAY JOIN FOR GRANT APPLICATION

You may see two river rivals joining forces in a grant application.   Napoleon Council’s Municipal Property committee discussed a program that utilizes grant dollars to clean-up vacant and abandoned industrial sites, and then turning them into future development opportunities.   Maumee Valley Planning Organization is working on a grant that would combine Defiance and Napoleon on an application seeking Brownfield remediation funds.  Up to $400,000 may be available.

And Napoleon is seeking approval from the state in trying to expand a community re-investment area, to be able to offer tax incentives to new or expanding local companies.
