Grant will help pay for new signs in city

The Community Economic Development Initiative of Kentucky (CEDIK) has awarded a $5,000 grant to be shared among eight coalition partners, and will fund “walkability and pedestrian access improvements” in Whitesburg.

CEDIK supports coalitions of “community stakeholders” across eastern Kentucky in order to improve the quality of life and economic opportunity in 12 downtowns across the region.

The mini-grant has been awarded to the Friends of Whitesburg Coalition and will fund a community engaged design process and installation of “way-finding” signage for the walking trail winding through Whitesburg.

The coalition includes: Appalshop, the Letcher County Farmer’s Market; HOMES Inc.; Headwaters; Center for Rural Strategies; the City of Whitesburg; the Letcher County Tourism Commission, and Mountain Comprehensive Health Corporation.
