SAINT-MARY-OF-THE-WOODS, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Vigo County Commissioners are taking the lead on a new grant for Saint-Mary-of-the-Woods.

Commissioners are helping lead efforts to get a state grant for the Saint-Mary-of-the-Woods theater. The project has been in the works for a couple of months.

County commissioner Chris Switzer says it looks like it’s going to be a multi-million dollar update.

“The money will flow through the auditor’s office and then will be dispersed to them, but we are happy to be a part of that project.”

Switzer adds that, if awarded, the funds for the project will be handed out at the beginning of next year with construction potentially starting as early as March of 2023.
