A Salt Lake City project is among 11 historic sites nationwide to win funding through a popular vote.
The $50,000 preservation grant to restore the former Utah Pickle Co. building was secured in a contest put together by American Express, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Main Street America. The 11 projects will receive a total of $1.5 million through the “Partners in Preservation: Main Streets” grant campaign. Projects from 25 cities competed for the funds.
Salt Lake City asked for residents, business owners, patrons and visitors to vote online in an attempt to secure $150,000 in grant funding for the project.
