The Available Building Tour on April 25 & 27 was successful with interested people touring the 11 buildings/office spaces offered in the downtown. Three of the buildings are city-owned and are in the process of renovation. Others are owned by locals or organizations. A packet of information that included financial institutions, contractors, resources, and any resources available to potential building owners were included in the packets. Each building had a dedicated page with historic information, building specifics, contact info & price if available. Many have a conceptual design for facade renovation through Main Street Iowa. The City of Jefferson has a Phase 2 program for renovation available.
Packets are still available to those interested and some will be at the Reunion Rendezvous during the Bell Tower Festival. A link to the packet information on the Jefferson Matters: Main Street website is here: Link to available buildings info
