The Green Space Pledge
From the City of Boone, “As part of the Economic Development plan for the downtown Boone are, the City of Boone will be constructing a Green Space in the lot of 8thand Story (The Old Meyers Building Location). It will include a central area which will accommodate the annual Christmas Tree and local artist’s work throughout the year. A band shelter will be built and available to local musicians. The space will be available to rent for special occasion such as weddings, parties and family reunions to name a few.”
Fundraising to reach the 110,000 dollar goal the city of Boone is offering residents and businesses to purchase a place in history as donors and sponsors for the project.
A few examples of ways that a business can donate and earn a permanent engraving in the Green Space is a Flower pot, a public bench and a series of sponsor levels starting at bronze all the way up to platinum.
Your donation qualifies you for an eight by eight inch engraved tile which will be displayed on the interior walls of the band shelter.
Prices for each donation reward varies and those interested are encouraged to reach out to Terry Moorman on Facebook or by phone at (515) 314-1568.
