Madison’s Board of Public Works and Safety approved nearly $150,000 in PACE awards at its meeting Tuesday including matching funds for an historically significant house at 707 Walnut Street and the chapel at Springdale Cemetery.

“The first quarter PACE awards will continue the robust trend of neighborhood revitalization,” Madison Mayor Bob Courtney said. “Dilapidated and dangerous properties that have blighted Madison for decades are continuing to be addressed with co-investment from the property owners. Large grants to organizations like Cornerstone and Springdale Cemetery will further our important preservation goals.”
