Nonprofit working to restore Downtown Plainview

Restoring Downtown Plainview

PLAINVIEW, TX (KCBD) - It's been an on-going effort in Downtown Plainview.

A nonprofit organization called Plainview Downtown Restoration has been working to breathe new life into downtown.

The effort includes the Skaggs Building. With grants and donations, Blair and Gayle Willson were able to restore the air conditioning and indoor and outdoor lighting. The Willsons say the restoration process creates excitement downtown and attracts new people and businesses.

"The future down the road is going to be involving the community as much as we can in the restoration efforts," Gayle Willson said.

The downtown restoration project is funded completely by private investors and costs nothing to the people who live here.
