Lowell, Oregon (June 2019) – The City of Lowell, Oregon announces the acquisition of land to accommodate future growth. The recently purchased sites will serve as the new locations for City Hall, a park and a new library with groundbreaking scheduled in the fall of 2019. The selection process will start soon for the builder. The city applied for a partial grant from the Oregon Parks & Recreation Department and chose The Urban Collaborative to provide the designs. Hoping to utilize an additional grant from the Ford Family Foundation, the City of Lowell selected Government Capital Corporation as the most cost effective financing solution for the remaining construction costs.
“Government Capital made the financing seem effortless. They walked me through each step of the process and responded quickly to all our questions and needs,” stated Jared Cobb, City Administrator.
Jana Offutt, Client Services Specialist of Government Capital Corporation commented, “With the current economic environment, municipalities are constantly searching for alternative funding options. Our ability to customize financing while utilizing a combination of other resources, allows our clients to obtain the funding needed for project completion.”
