Fundraising for downtown Janesville moves forward

Fundraising efforts for phase one of a project to create an appealing city center in Janesville are nearing completion. Arise Now Director of Development and Community Engagement Jolynn Burden says they’re about $50-thousand within the $6-million goal for phase one.  Phase one projects expected to be completed next year include the Town Square, Heritage Bridge, public art pieces, kiosks, and work on the east side of the river. Phase two fundraising will total $4-million and help develop the river walk and possibly an amphitheater near the Janesville Performing Arts Center.
