Downtown Delphos is looking to get a little more love soon.

Council talked about development programs going on in other communities in the area on Monday night. Two speakers shared what those possibilities are and how those programs could work for the downtown Delphos community. Some examples talked about were working with organizations to get grants with the State of Ohio, as well as, finding investors and small business owners who want to invest in the city and find a niche into what Delphos can be special for and focus in on that specific area. 

"The next step would be the city officials working with the Downtown Development Association to see what kind of opportunities and ideas we can help them out with," said Delphos Mayor Josh Gillespie. "Whether it's tax abatements or helping them apply for grants, I think that would be the next step and sitting down with someone from the Association to see what their plan is and how we can fit into that program."

Council also approved the application for CDBG and Natureworks grants to be used for a roadway improvement project and a dog park. Council threw around the idea of starting up a Farmers Market this summer, and council agreed to reconvene for a special meeting April 24th at 7 to talk again about the potential CPI increase.
