Pittsburg commissioners to hire consultant to assess retail and hotel space; approve facade funding


Pittsburg's city commissioners on Wednesday approved a proposal to hire a consultant to assess the city's retail and hotel space.

Hoffman Strategy Group and Jeff Green partners out of Lincoln, Nebraska have been chosen for the project.

They'll look at the potential of the city's hotel and retail space to see if the city is positioned to hold larger events.

The project will cost $25,000 with the funds coming from the city's revolving loan fund.

Commissioners also approved more downtown facade grants.  The money is part of the city's Economic Development Fund and promises to match the amount businesses put into the exterior of their buildings.

It helps support and keep Downtown Pittsburg looking good and attracting customers.

This round of grants totals nearly $25,000 and will help seven businesses.
