Grant Request Summary

I recently bought the Woodstock Pharmacy building and want to install a sprinkler system to protect the building (and others on the block).

Project Budget

$25,000+

Desired Grant Amount

$20,000 - $24,999

Other Funding Sources

I am looking to fund about half the cost of the project. I will personally pay for the balance.

Project Timeframe

I expect the project to be completed by May 1, 2022 and earlier if possible.

How will this project benefit the economic and community development of Woodstock?

The building at 19-21 Central St. has been in the heart of the Woodstock community from early in the history of the Village. I am proud to be its next steward. Sadly, it is no longer a pharmacy, but I hope to house two new retail establishments in the former pharmacy/gift shop spaces. I want to protect the building by installing a sprinkler system (it has none). Estimated costs are $40,000-$45,000 for the sprinkler system and $2,000-$10,000 for the connection of a sprinkler water pipe to the town water connection.

Which EDC Working Grouop Objectives does your project best support?

Attracting New Businesses (Attracting businesses to Woodstock), Downtown Physical Rejuvenation (Improving facilities and public spaces in the downtown area)

Other Objectives

Project Collaborations

I have consulted with the Woodstock Fire Chief and will coordinate with the town's emergency services as needed.

Additional Comments

I am strongly committed to installing the system. Any grant will be helpful in achieving this goal. I am addressing many needed upgrades to the building and a grant will help me address them sooner.
