Constantine awarded grant

The village of Constantine was awarded a grant in excess of $240,000 Friday from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation.

During a ceremony at the village office, municipal leaders accepted the money awarded as part of a Downtown Infrastructure Grant. The $242,000 gift was contingent on an $80,000 match from the village.

Village Manager Mark Honeysett said the funds will help pay for a 34-space parking lot downtown, new lighting and a number of other amenities to enhance Constantine’s downtown area.

Constantine was one of 14 communities in the state to receive grants from the EDC. A total of $7 million was available from the Lansing agency.

Work is expected to start later in the spring and conclude in September.
