Town receives Planning Grant


The Town recently received notification from the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) in Richmond that it had received a planning grant in the amount of $5,000 to develop a Town Revitalization Project. Please click HERE for a copy of the letter received. 

The Mayor, with assistance from Town Council and Town staff, has assembled the Management Team, which will assist the Town in developing a proposal for a grant project for the future. The first Management Team meeting is on Thursday, December 22, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. at the Fincastle Volunteer Fire Department upstairs Training Room, located at 25 Vine Street (the 8400 block of Roanoke Road, Route 220), Fincastle, VA. 

While this is the initial meeting for the Management Team, this is an open public meeting and the general public is welcome to attend.   

Early in 2023, the Team will develop a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a specific scope of projects and activities. The overall objective of this planning grant is to develop a realistic, achievable plan for further revitalization of the Town of Fincastle.
