WELCOME TO CUBA CITY
"THE CITY OF PRESIDENTS"
Cuba City has been known as “The City of Presidents” since 1976. Looking to do something to celebrate our country’s bicentennial, a group of citizens got together and came up with the Presidential Shield idea and the rest is history. To ensure that this continues, new shields have been completed and we should start seeing them go up within the next few days. Thank you to the City of Presidents Committee for this great gift to the city.
We have had a lot of interest in the façade grants and loan programs approved by the city. The revitalization of Main Street is very important and we hope every business takes advantage of the grants and loans available to them. Working together, we can make things happen. The new LED street lights for Main Street have been ordered and we should have them up sometime in late October. You will be impressed with their brightness. Our new Presidential shields will show up nicely at night with the new lights.
We want to welcome Becky Day and Dave Thommen to Cuba City. They have purchased the hardware store buildings and have opened up a very impressive antique mall. The new business is called the “Junque Stops Here” and opened on August 15th. We are very lucky to have a new business on Main Street and we would like to give a heartfelt “welcome” to Dave & Becky and wish them many years of success. If you haven’t had a chance to stop in, please do so.
Congratulations to Randy Brookens and the NMC Corporation on breaking ground on your new building addition in the industrial park. Your commitment to Cuba City is so important to us. The addition of new jobs will definitely have a positive effect on our city. Thank You!
We are in the process of street evaluation and the board of public works will be meeting soon to discuss options. We would like to be able to do more streets in 2015. The hard winter last year really took its toll on some of our streets. I will have more on this at a later date.
It is great to live in Cuba City! We have so many positive things happening from a new business locating here, the expansion of a business in our Industrial Park, our Main Street revitalization, to our new Main Street lights. As the fall season is upon us, we have exciting things being planned for Halloween to our “Christmas in Cuba City” celebration. Thank you to everyone in Cuba City for giving of your time and talents to the many different projects that will be happening. Together we can make things happen!
