Progress Continues for New Potosi Town Square Park Fundraising Project

(Potosi) Fundraising efforts seem to be going great for the Town Square Park project in Potosi.

Washington County Clerk Jenny Allen has been leading the charge for this community driven park which will be built just across High Street from the courthouse.

Allen says fundraising is looking good but they need the full amount before they can start the build.

The main feature of this park in downtown Potosi is going to be an outdoor amphitheater but Allen says there will be other features too.

Allen says they were turned down for the first grant they had applied for.

It was from American Rescue Plan monies for outdoor recreation.

However, they have made it through the first hurdle for the Land, Water, Conservation Fund Grant.

They will know sometime in the fall if they will be awarded the $500,000 dollars.

If you would like to help the Washington County and Potosi community with this project, donations can be made at Jenny Allen’s county clerk office in the Washington County Courthouse.
