Stanley awarded grant to study events center

Express Staff Writer

STANLEY—This tourist town beneath granite sawtooth spires was awarded a $25,000 federal grant to conduct a feasibility study on an all-season events center, which could spur business expansion in the small, seasonal resort town.

The study will provide preliminary plans for a site, building design, financing and market analysis for the potential center, which would allow small businesses to remain open for a longer portion of the year.

The center would include a business incubator, library, computer lab and distance learning facilities.

The funds were granted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development Office, announced Idaho Sens. Mike Crapo and Larry Craig and Rep. Mike Simpson.

"Because of Stanley’s pristine location, nestled in the Sawtooth Mountains, it’s economy is dependent on seasonal business," Simpson said. "This grant will help Stanley small businesses create opportunities all year round."

Added Craig: "I am pleased the grant money for a feasibility study has been provided and hope this rural development project is able to benefit the people and businesses of Stanley."
