new text begin (a) $1,500,000 is appropriated from the bond proceeds
fund to the commissioner of employment and economic development for a grant to the city
of Scandia to predesign, design, construct, furnish, and equip the Scandia Water Tower
Barn Arts and Heritage Center in the city of Scandia. This appropriation is for the
reconstruction and rehabilitation of the historic Scandia water tower barn for reuse as a
regional arts and heritage center, along with construction of an amphitheater and site
improvements. This facility will be located adjacent to the Gammelgarden Museum and
will complement the telling of the important story of the state's original Swedish immigrant
community. The water tower barn is the state's only remaining water tower barn tank house
and is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places for its unique engineering
significance and the role that tank house facilities played in the evolution from the agrarian
to the early 20th century mercantile economy.

whether provided before or after the enactment of this section, are eligible to be part of the
