Assistance for historic properties

The Wyoming Business Council invites owners of historic, commercial buildings in traditional downtown districts to submit a preapplication by Sept. 1 to determine eligibility for the Historic Architecture Assistance Fund. Final applications are due Oct. 15.

The funding is for the first step in a preservation project. If a building is selected, an architect will be assigned to work with the owner. Typical projects include a building assessment, structural analysis, analysis of building code and Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, and facade and signage schematic design. The fund is not for physical repairs, the purchase of building materials or work by contractors.

The fund is available through Wyoming Main Street, a Business Council program. For an application go to WyomingBusiness.org/content/applications. For info call Linda Kiisk, historic preservation architect for the State Historic Preservation Office, at 307-777-7566, or Linda Klinck, program manager for Wyoming Main Street, at 307-777-2934.

Huntsman Springs: New name, new boss

Tributary is the new name of Huntsman Springs, the resort subdivision built around a David McClay Kidd golf course south of Driggs, Idaho.

The new name for the 1,500-acre community — including 500 acres of protected wetlands — honors the underground waterways that flow from the nearby Tetons to the Teton River, said Ulla Rasche, Tributary’s recently added general manager. Rasche worked 10 years at the Four Seasons Jackson Hole and has also been “director of residences” for four Four Seasons properties in the region.

Also new to Tributary is Assistant General Manager James Canedy, who worked for Four Seasons in Jackson and Hawaii, and executive Chef Kevin Humphrey, who has years of history at the Spur Restaurant and Bar at Teton Mountain Lodge.

Rasche said Tributary also plans new offerings and programming and will launch a real estate sales campaign this fall. The new website is TributaryIdaho.com.
