(This amendment provides $100,000 the first year from the general fund for the exterior renovation of the Jones House, a historic property located between the Newsome House Museum and Cultural Arts Center and the Cornelius and Carrie Riggins Brown Education Center. The Jones House needs extensive renovations, including a new roof, new heating and cooling system, new plumbing and security systems, and new siding and windows. In addition, the City of Newport News would like to install new sidewalks linking all three properties. This grant would be used to perform many of the exterior repairs to the structure.)
