Facade Improvement Roundup: Eyesores No Longer

Large Portion Of Projects Are Taking Place Near Downtown

Earlier today I posted about the city’s fourth year facade improvements, I wanted to provide a follow up to that article with more specifics.  It appears that 6/9 of the selected establishments are in downtown fringe neighborhoods.  I must say that I think the facade improvement program is a wonderful asset to the community, considering the fact that this isn’t very common nationwide.

I would be curious to see an official report on economic impact of this program, due to the fact that tax dollars are being given away. With that being said, projects such as this can increase the tax base and act as small catalysts for neighborhood improvements.  Frankly, I’m excited to see whats in store for each project, but most of all the ones along Fairfield.

Be sure to share your thoughts on the program in the comment section.
