The City is pleased to announce the expansion of the City’s Façade Improvement Program to all commercial buildings within the City in commercial zoning districts for FY 19-20. The program offers façade improvement reimbursement by combining public funds and private investments to improve the physical appearance of commercial properties throughout the City. Developed as an economic development incentive, the Façade Improvement Program assists owners and merchants to keep storefronts looking attractive and inviting to the shopping public. The Community Development Department set up the program so that both building owners and tenants can get a portion of their maintenance, repair and construction costs reimbursed. Once a building owner has completed eligible building restoration activities, the City will reimburse up to 50% of the total cost of those eligible activities (up to a maximum of $5,000.00). Please contact Alex Othon, Assistant Planner at 831-648-3190 for more information.
