Stanton’s downtown facade project begins

In October 2021, the city of Stanton received roughly $445,000 for its downtown revitalization project. The funds came from a Community Development Block Grant, with the project renovating eight buildings in downtown Stanton.
Work on the project began last week and is to be completed in 10 months.
Stanton Community Development Director Jenna Ramsey said the project includes the restoration of the front façade of select downtown buildings on the east and west sides of Broad Ave.
The side façade of four buildings will be included. Buildings are not within a historic district, however, the city is seeking a historic district designation. All buildings will require special attention with work including, but not be limited to: new storefront window systems, tuckpointing, awnings, new/repaired upper level windows, and upper level entry doors.
The buildings include Underdog Design and Drawing, the former gun shop at 318 Broad Ave., the former toy store at 324 Broad Ave., the former Stanton Senior Center at 326 Broad Ave., Great Western Bank, the Pershin Laundromat, and Pershin Service.
Including local contributions and owner matches, the overall total for the project is just over $762,000.
Additional contributors include the Iowa West Foundation, the Ripple Effect Program, the Rural Innovation Grant, the Power of Connection, and the Montgomery County Community Foundation and Curtis Architecture and Design.
