Letters: Thank you for Main Avenue support

Thanks to Congressman James Oberstar for including Park Rapids Main Avenue Infrastructure Reconstruction in your Transportation Bill as a high priority project. The community appreciates your consideration. We realize the bill needs to be processed through committee before it becomes final but regardless of the outcome, we want to thank you for your support.

Our Main Avenue Revitalization Project has begun. On June 23, the city held the initial pubic hearing and voted to begin the project. Engineering survey and design preparations are currently underway. Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring and should be completed by the end of next summer.

We are very encouraged by our community interest and involvement. We hope to achieve a revitalized downtown that the whole community will be proud of. Your efforts are a big help in assisting us to reach that goal. Again, thank you.

Ellis and Cynthia Jones, RiverBend Home Expressions, Park Rapids
