The city of Mauldin has been awarded a $183,725 grant from the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism’s 2020 Undiscovered South Carolina grant program.
The city will apply the funds to its Cultural Center lobby and plaza renovation, which is expected to start in 2021.
“Mauldin Cultural Center is proud to have the commitment and partnership of SCPRT with grant funding toward the lobby/plaza expansion,” said Mauldin Cultural Center manager Keira Heider. “This will increase our ability to enhance the patron experience and continue to showcase the exciting programming offered by support of the city of Mauldin.”
The renovation will include:
- Building a new, handicapped-accessible plaza
- Knocking out the main front wall to create new sliding door access to lobby and plaza
- Renovating flooring and ceilings
- Adding a ticket booth
- Renovating bathrooms
The Undiscovered South Carolina grant program assists communities with the development of publicly owned tourism products and attractions, which may bring visitors to undiscovered parts of South Carolina.
Both the city of Rock Hill and Berkeley County also received grants from the program. Rock Hill received $191,275 towards its BMX Supercross and Pump Track renovation, and Berkeley County received $125,000 to apply to its Heritage Room at Cypress Gardens, which was damaged in the 2015 floods.
