Mayor Kilgos West Point Growth Vision Funded By Governor Ivey

After months of tedious, hard work, Governor Kay Ivey endorsed the municipal growth vision of West Point Mayor Kenneth Kilgo on Tuesday.

Governor Ivey awarded $120,000 in CDBG grant monies to the Town of West Point.

These CDBG funds will be used to construct a deceleration lane and access road off Highway 157 southbound to safely enable a safe flow of traffic in and out of a development anchored by Dale’s Market.

Dales is headquartered in Hanceville where it operates another highly successful convenience store.

This economic development funding is one of the final pieces of a complicated string of logistic hurdles faced by Kilgo. His goal for this very busy intersection of US Highway 157 and County Road 1242 has long been to bring it fully into the 21st Century.

Dale’s Market will include a Subway sandwich shop. The entire facility will employ 20 people when the complex is finished

“This development will provide new retail options in West Point and create additional jobs for the area,” Ivey said. “I am pleased to assist in this project, which also will provide additional income for the town.”.

Ivey awarded the grant from funds provided to the state by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA) is administering the grant.

The Town of West Point is providing $107, 776 in local funds for the project.

ADECA administers an array of programs supporting law enforcement and traffic safety, economic development, energy conservation, water resource management and recreation development.
