Reap Grant Continued...The proposed work will include engineering plans, architectural drawings, interior framing stabilization, replacement of stairways and replacement of flooring.

The total cost of the project is $83,445.  Therefore the funding from additional grants is being sought.  Motor Mill supporters are willing to help with the construction. Other fund raising efforts and the proceeds from the benefit concert Big Blue Sky Band Concert to be held at the Elkader Opera House October 14, 2006 will also be used to support this critical project.

The Motor Mill Foundation of Clayton County has played an important role in receiving this funding.  Foundation Members have been meeting and planning for this project monthly.  The organization has helped with budgeting, work plans, recruiting additional volunteers, fund raising efforts and promotion of the Motor Mill site.
