US Grant Boosts 'New Downtown' Plan In Northeast Nevada City

WEST WENDOVER, Nev. (AP) — A federal grant is giving the northeast Nevada city of West Wendover a boost toward building a ground-up downtown that it never had before.

Nevada U.S. Sens. Catherine Cortez Masto and Jacky Rosen said in a Thursday statement the $1.75 million allocation from the U.S. Department of Commerce aims to help the city prepare a site for new businesses and long-term economic stability.

Mayor Daniel Corona tells the Elko Daily Free Press the idea is to build a place where people can live, work, play and gather. Work could start this summer. West Wendover is on Interstate 80 at the Utah state line. It borders the Utah city of Wendover.
