Preservation Grant Boost

Good news for Pueblo! Bojon Bro’s, Olde Towne Carriage House, The Gold Dust Saloon, and Walter Brewing Company have received a Community Business Preservation Grant of $130,000.

The grant comes from a joint initiative by the Southern Colorado Economic Development District and Colorado’s Business Funding and Incentives Division. It aims to restore the sparkling allure of our downtown area and boost the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk district.

By revitalizing their storefronts and public facilities, these businesses will draw in more foot traffic. This could spur business growth and breathe new life into our local economy. The project is not just about renovation. It’s about preserving our rich business history and restoring Pueblo’s vintage charm.

Gov. Jared Polis believes this grant is a lifeline for businesses hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. By shopping locally, we can keep our businesses thriving and culturally enriching our state. So let’s act now and show our support!

Let’s meet at the Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce’s Business Awards Luncheon on April 11. We’ll be celebrating TR Toppers’ Business of the Year award and other significant local economic contributions.
