- 'The Gebbie Foundation, along with the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation, will continue to move forward with plans to hire an engineering firm to analyze what should be done with the vacant Arcade Building and the former Holmlunds Wallpaper & Paint store. The Foundation wants to determine three potential outcomes for the vacant buildings (demolition, stabilization, restoration). Once the Foundation has the analysis on what to do with the buildings, they’re hoping to receive funding through the Consolidated Funding Application as part of the state’s Regional Economic Development Council program to pursue the best option for the vacant buildings.'
