Bank First sponsors Public Art Exhibit

Thanks to a generous gift from 
Bank First, the Town Square is hosting its first-ever art show featuring works from WHS students and the Watertown Arts Council. 


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.
