“Word” Grant Awarded

Word, the Blue Hill literary festival fiscally sponsored by BHCD, has been awarded an $8,000 grant from the Charles T. & Marion M. Thompson Foundation.

Word’s worthy efforts, which include an annual literary festival and several other events at other times of the year, have been recognized and supported by several grantors over the years.

Congratulations to the Word volunteers on continued festival success!

South Street Project Team Requests Donations

The effort to obtain a Federal grant under the state’s “Bicycle and Pedestrian Program” to make South Street more walkable and bikeable continues to move ahead.

One aspect of the approval process was that the project team indicated that they would make an effort to offset the cost of the Town’s matching funds (20%) with private donations.

A letter and connectivity map was mailed this week to all Blue Hill residents making the case for individual donations. Although the letter did not specify a deadline, the plan is to provide all donated funds to the Town in early 2020.
