The grant and resources it allows the town to access will help to examine up to three scenarios for the future use of the building.

The town is seeking a sustainable option that will retain its function as an emergency shelter and a center for community life.

Alternatives to be considered may include, but are not limited to:

1. A cultural center with an educational component that would utilize existing classrooms.

2. A small business incubator that can utilize the commercial-grade kitchen and the highest internet speed available in the area.

3. Town offices and town garage on one site.

4. Housing with a community room.

Holland was one of 29 projects funded through the Department of Housing and Community Development for this project.
