CEDA Team Member working with the City of Lewiston EDA, Donna Mack, authored a Winona County SHIP Live Well grant application that awarded the City of Lewiston $3,069 in funding to purchase two powder coated bike fix-it stations with air pumps and pressure gauges. The total cost of the project was over $4,250 with the City covering the balance of the costs.
One of the stations will be placed at Southside Memorial Park and and the other at Lewiston City Hall. Lewiston Monument donated the concrete slabs and foundation for the project. The City completed the project in June.
Both City Hall and Southside Memorial Park, with their new bike fix it stations, not only help promote a healthier lifestyle, but are a quick and easy spots to repair and park bikes for residents and any bike enthusiasts passing through town on their daily, weekly, or monthly rides!
“The City is very grateful to the Winona County SHIP Live Well program for their assistance in providing Lewiston with the tools to become a healthier, more vibrant place to live!” said Charlie Matzke, Lewiston Economic Development Authority.
