Blue Rapids Community Action Team

Goal: $5,000.00

Specific Need

We want to beautify and revitalize the Blue Rapids area.  Revitalizing the downtown area, curb and guttering repair, beautification of the city...all these things will take funds that are not readily available.  We will need funds to make the dream come true to bring Blue Rapids back to a vital community with a variety of businesses and tourist opportunities.


The Blue Rapids Community Action Team is a volunteer organization working together to achieve a goal of community involvement and improvement, as well as economic development.


We currently are placing flower baskets around the town square, filling the planters with flowers and placing new plants by the welcome signs on both ends of town.  We have been painting around the square.  We are applying for state historic status on one of the old buildings in town to allow access to grants to rehabilitate it.  We are working with Marshall County Partnership for Growth to explore the possibilities of rehabilitating other old buildings. After rehab, we want to attract businesses to fill those buildings. Several people are interested, but the cost to rehab the building, and start a business are prohibitive.   We'd like to create green spaces in one or more of the areas on the square without a building.  Work on an audio tour of the town is in the works.  Many, many projects to be done, but we need resources to attain our goals.  We have a group of eager volunteers wanting to enhance and grow this lovely town.
