PUEBLO — The City of Pueblo is continuing to try to improve it's downtown area.

The City of Pueblo has received $300,000 in federal money to help support environmental assessments and redevelopment opportunities for people who want to do business downtown.

"It helps out downtown because of property owners, who are redeveloping property, it (can) increases the tax base," explained Pueblo Mayor Nick Gradisar. "It increases the commercial activity downtown, it increases the people living downtown, and that just makes for a vital community center."

The money will go towards different sites in downtown Pueblo like the decommissioned power plant, a filling station and motor freight station.
