The Storefront Renovation Program assists targeted neighborhood retail districts in becoming attractive, economically viable, and diverse places to shop. The program helps fund the rehabilitation/renovation of (primarily) traditional storefront building exteriors including:

  • Bringing them into Building Code compliance
  • Correction of maintenance items and code violations
  • Renovation of architectural/historic details
  • Site improvements
  • Design and installation of new signage

The Storefront Program offers financial incentives (rebate or loan) combined with free City design assistance to applicants considering an exterior rehabilitation of a commercial structure.  To better meet these objectives, the City partners with neighborhood Community Development Corporations.
