WETUMPKA, AL (WSFA) -

Wetumpka residents gave their input on downtown revitalization at a meeting Monday night.

It was an interactive meeting where residents could draw their ideas on oversized maps of downtown Wetumpka.

The city is preparing for the possibility of being awarded an $800,000 grant from ADECA. The grant will help fund Phase I of the city's downtown revitalization project.

The phase is expected to be a $3.1 million investment. It includes things like infrastructure, street scapes and new light poles.

Mayor Jerry Willis says he's waiting and hoping for the governor to announce Wetumpka as a recipient of the grant.

Meanwhile, he's moving forward with the finishing touches to the downtown plan.
