Grant Could Give a Facelift to Downtown Waynesboro

WAYNESBORO, Va. -- Some businesses in downtown Waynesboro could soon get a facelift.

On Monday, Waynesboro City Council will talk about part of its Five-Year Consolidated Plan.

Part of that plan includes a $20,000 grant, which the federal government will be giving to two businesses to help make their entrances more attractive to visitors.

Heritage On Main Street is one of the businesses applying for that grant.
The people there think this will help bring more money to the area.

"It makes me feel great that they care about this downtown area. Since I've moved here, there have been shops that have come and gone. I feel that with a little bit of a facelift drawing more attention to them, may make them stick around for a while and bring some income," said Amanda Becerra, a manager at the restaurant.

The city expects to receive the grant in the fall. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
