McCook using ACE funds for gathering place project

The McCook, Neb., City Council recently voted to use $10,000 in ACE funds toward the Norris Alley Project, a new outdoor gathering place.

ACE’s revenue return program has provided more than $3.2 million to ACE member communities in Nebraska, including nearly $163,000 for McCook. Earlier this year the ACE Board of Directors approved a $400,000 distribution to its member communities, including $19,652 to McCook.

McCook’s project includes renovating a vacant lot into “Norris Alley,” an outdoor space of trees, furniture, benches and planters. McCook has used past ACE funds for a park bandshell, skate park and a new senior center bus.
