MASON CITY – Downtown improvements are continuing this summer in Mason City.

On the recently-renovated plaza at the north end of Southbridge Mall, Blake Cooper, owner of DC Professional Painting & Staining, was hard at work this week painting several buildings there and in Commercial Alley, just to the east.

“It’s hot out here but we’re glad to have the work. We are painting the Bergo’s buildings green and the then over here across the plaza this one will be gray,” Mr. Cooper said, pointing to the storefront at 12 South Federal Ave. His painting business has been in operation for the last three years. Prior to that, Blake worked on windmills after putting in nearly 13 years at the now-closed IMI Cornelius plant.

“I found my niche,” Blake said.

Snyder Construction of Clear Lake is in charge of much of the work on the other facades, 10 in all, that are getting some rehab work. The project started in late August and will continue for the next several weeks.

Starting on the plaza, interested persons will see work on storefronts heading north.

Many people in Mason City find the project to be an exciting improvement to the downtown, which has seen millions of dollars come its way in recent years.
