Downtown Shelbyville will start being renovated next summer. The downtown Shelbyville transformation project that has been in the works for nearly a decade will officially start phase one of construction in the summer of 2018.
Alan Spesard is on the committee for improving downtown Shelbyville. He says the one-point-three million dollars in funding is coming from the state level.
Spesard says there are many projects that will be completed during next summer’s construction.
Spesard says this is phase one of a multi-phase project to improve all of downtown Shelbyville.
Spesard says before the work begins, they are holding a series of public outreach meetings to hear residents’ and business owners’ thoughts. The next meeting is set for 6 p.m. November 6th at Shelbyville Village Hall.
