The PACE Group of Thomasville awarded $25,000 grant from the NC Department of Commerce
On February 2, 2015, The PACE Group of Thomasville was one of 10 recipients for the Cultural Grant issued by the Economic Development Competitive Grant Program for Underserved and Limited Resources Communities issued by the North Carolina Department of Commerce Rural Economic Development Division. 
The recent property donations (6 Main Street and 9 Salem Street) from Bob Callicutt of Callicutt Realty kickstarted PACE’s Historic Downtown Building Restoration Project. Many of Thomasville’s main street historic buildings require new roofs immediately. The structural roof supports have rotted and decayed, which has caused water leaks and damages. If the roofs are not repaired, then these buildings will be torn down and Thomasville will lose vestiges of its cultural history. The grant funding received will be used towards the roof repairs of these buildings. 
Once the roofs are repaired, PACE will move forward to restore as economically feasible the original facade of the buildings. 

The Historic Building Restoration Project is a priority this year for the PACE Group. The project is perhaps the most expensive and ambitious one that they have undertaken and PACE is appealing to the community for additional financial support. Past completed projects include, PACE Amphitheater, Farmers Market building, street lamp project, waste disposal cans, sidewalk enlargements and other enhancements.
 
The PACE Group regards the restoration of the historic downtown district as a means of revitalizing the city of Thomasville’s community, culture and economy. For citizens interested in supporting PACE’s efforts including the Historic Downtown Building Restoration Project, you can contact Doug Elliott at (336) 472-1222 and doug@tvillelaw.com

 Donations can be sent to the following: 
The Pace Group, Inc
P.O. Box 1485
Thomasville, NC 27361
The PACE Group, Inc. (People Achieving Community Enhancement) of Thomasville is a citizen-led organization formed in April 1991 to pursue solutions to revitalize the historic downtown district of Thomasville. PACE has no paid positions and is entirely composed of dedicated volunteers. After the release of the 1999 comprehensive analysis report developed by the North Carolina Urban Design Assistance Team (UDAT), which recommended a list of workable and innovative design solutions for the city, PACE has focused much of their efforts to achieve those solutions.
