2016 Facade Grant Application
Eatonton Main Street wants to help create a fresh look for buildings and businesses in the central business district, by providing matching funds toward physical improvements. The Design Committee of Eatonton Main Street is looking for projects that can make a positive visual impact on our downtown.
When our buildings look good… we look good! The appearance of the downtown district matters to shoppers. Let us partner with you in creating a beautiful downtown that will draw residents and visitors to explore and shop.
The most important thing to keep in mind when planning your new façade is that, when buildings are an integral element of a historic streetscape, they should reflect and complement the character of the surrounding area to the greatest extent possible
The façade is the entire exposed exterior surface of a building that fronts a public street and contains the building’s principal entrance. In certain cases, Main Street does address side facades and in very rare cases, rear facades.
PLEASE SEND ALL FACADE GRANT APPLICATIONS TO Main Street Design, P O Box 4384, Eatonton GA 31024 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE SEE BROCHURE FOR SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT MAIN STREET HAS A LIMITED BUDGET AND ONCE THE FUNDS ARE USED UP, WE MAY HAVE TO REFUSE FACADE GRANTS. HOWEVER, THE BUDGET IS REFRESHED EVERY SEPT 1ST AND YOU MAY APPLY AGAIN IF REFUSED.
Awarded funds will be for commercial purposes on buildings offering retail, restaurants, service establishments or offices. Tenants are required to have written approval from property owners to participate in the program.
The Design Committee will be cognizant of historic values and applicants will be expected to propose projects consistent with the historical integrity of the buildings occupied by the applicants.
Eligible buildings must be located within the Main Street Tier 1 or Tier 2 areas.
