Duke Urban Revitalization Grant – Torchlight Pass

I had the pleasure of attending the presentation of the 2016 Duke Urban Revitalization Initiative grants this morning.   Downtown Middletown Inc. and Torchlight Pass were on hand to receive a $20,000 check to assist with renovations of the old TV Middletown building downtown.

Duke’s Urban Redevelopment Initiative focuses on eliminating blight, creating jobs, and increasing business retention/expansion and workforce retraining opportunities. The Goal is to spur additional economic development activities in the community.

Middletown was well represented with the Mayor, Economic Development, and Chamber of Commerce representation.  Mayor Larry Mulligan thanked Duke for their ongoing support of Middletown and touted the continuing growth of all sectors of Middletown to a regional audience.

Congratulations to DMI and Torchlight Pass on their recognition and support from our partners at Duke Energy.
