Grants recommended for artificial intelligence, comprehensive blight study; loan for airport restaurant

1 min read


● A North Platte couple was denied a grant to repair a vacant restaurant at the regional airport for an Einstein Bros. Bagels franchise due to unexpected plumbing costs.

● The Quality Growth Fund advisory committee offered the couple a 10-year, low-interest loan instead of a grant, which was declined.

● The committee approved a $29,700 grant for the downtown Canteen District to subscribe to an artificial intelligence service that tracks visitor data in different locations.

● The AI program tracks the locations of cell phones and e-tablets to provide data on visitor activity, which will be useful for grant applications and business planning.

● The committee also approved a $30,000 grant for a comprehensive study of blighted areas in the city to streamline the process for developers seeking financing.
