Please organize your project into no more than five (5) work elements. For example, a work element might be “Structural

The narrative should identify the major components/activities of each work element, giving a thorough description of
the areas of the courthouse that will be affected for each. Describe in as much detail as possible the proposed method for
implementing the project. Please identify any features of the courthouse that will be altered as a result of the project.
The primary goal of the program is to preserve/rehabilitate existing character-defining features of Washington’s historic
courthouses. For each Work Element, describe existing historic features/fabric that will be impacted. Provide detail on the
existing conditions of character-defining features and explain the effect each proposed Work Element will have on these
features. Discuss proposed strategies for retention of character-defining features and note if any specific Work Elements will
address and remedy former inappropriate alterations to the courthouse. Finally, please discuss the potential for historic,
character-defining to features be permanently lost without immediate attention.
Please note: Only work elements that directly address historic, character-defining features are eligible for state grant funds.
Expenditures on work elements that address non-historic features/characteristics are not eligible for reimbursement but may be used toward the county match.

The following questions are intended to provide the grant selection committee with a better understanding of the future use of and maintenance for the courthouse. 1. What county functions will the courthouse serve after project completion? (Required) 2. How will the county support the on-going maintenance of the courthouse for the next 10 years? Be specific.

Describe any specific capital projects or improvements outside of the existing grant request planned for the next five (5) years. Please explain how any proposed projects will affect the on-going maintenance of the courthouse. (Required) 5. Estimate how much per year the county’s maintenance costs will change as a result of the proposed rehabilitation project. If maintenance costs will increase, include cost estimates along with planned funding sources. If the project will decrease maintenance costs (a roof replacement that will reverse maintenance on a constantly leaking roof, for example), be sure to describe this and estimate the cost savings. (Required) 6. Describe the county's existing maintenance plan/process and the anticipated revisions to this process that will be needed to appropriately handle newly rehabilitated material/courthouse features.
