Motivated by her love of Watertown’s Historic Main Street, Misti Hawn is renovating the exterior of 415 E. Main, supported in-part by an RDA loan and grant.
RDA Revolving Loan Fund at Work
The Eleven Seven Building, located at 117 N. Second Street, was in-part financed by an RDA loan/grant. Owner Dan Rahfaldt walks us through the project in this video.
ABOUT THE RDA
The Redevelopment Authority (RDA) was established in December 2016 for the purpose of carrying out blight elimination, slum clearance, and urban renewal projects in the City of Watertown. It is separate from the long-standing Community Development Authority (CDA) which exclusively handles public housing in the city.
The purpose of the RDA is to encourage reinvestment in under-utilized areas of the city through the rehabilitation or removal of blighted properties resulting in new infill housing and commercial developments, job creation, an expanded tax base, and an improved quality of life for the citizens of Watertown.
