Kingman is one of only 50 communities across the country that advanced into the quarterfinals of the America’s Best Communities competition. A panel of expert judges will now review the revitalization plans submitted by the communities, and the best proposals will be awarded additional funding in the next rounds of the competition.
When it advanced into the ABC quarterfinals, Kingman was awarded $50,000 to construct a Community Revitalization Plan. Frontier Communications, DISH Network, CoBank and The Weather Channel — the sponsors of the America’s Best Communities competition — provided $35,000 of the award, with the remaining $15,000 in funding coming from Kingman’s Adopt-a-Community mentor Dycom.
The comprehensive plan aims to fuel the momentum behind ongoing efforts to revitalize Downtown, increase tourism, improving quality of life, and create new jobs. By putting this at the heart of the community’s plan, local leaders believe they have constructed a strategy that can drive the community forward.
The full plan will soon be available to view. Stay tuned!
