South Bend's conservatories and greenhouses will undergo a makeover thanks to a $52,000 grant.
Mayor Steve Leucke made the announcement Monday.
The Mayor says the grant is the first step in keeping the buildings open.
Earlier this year, it appeared the city's conservatories and greenhouses would close because of a budget shortfall.
Money from the grant will be used to repair the buildings, including: replacing broken glass and old thermostats and pipes.
