Building Façade Improvement Program for Main Streets CIP
The Windsor Building Facade Improvement Program and Urban Design Guidelines CIP for Main Streets builds on recent investment in municipal infrastructure improvements, such as road rehabilitation and streetscape projects and leverages public investment by encouraging the physical improvement of building facades along traditional Main Streets by offering a Commercial/Mixed-Use Building Façade grant. Details and requirements of the Financial Incentive Program can be found starting on page 20 of the document.
Through the Financial Incentive Program, the City will match 50% of the costs for eligible building facade and storefront restoration improvements to commercial and mixed use buildings within the designated Main Street area up to a maximum of $30,000 per project to a maximum of $60,000 per project for larger buildings with multiple storefronts. Grants will also be provided for certain building and development fees for eligible projects. All improvements are reviewed by the Planning & Building Department based on the Urban Design Guidelines which can be found starting on page 44 of the Windsor Building Facade Improvement Program and Urban Design Guidelines CIP for Main Streets.
