In 2008, the former Redevelopment Agency approved the Downtown Signage Grant Program that reimbursed business owners/tenants the cost of obtaining exterior blade signs in the Downtown Target Areas. The program was shut down with the dissolution of Redevelopment, but thanks to one-time former RDA bond proceeds, the program has been brought back for both property owners and tenants.
PRIORITY AREAS FOR DOWNTOWN SIGN GRANT PROGRAM
Downtown Loan applications are assigned a priority based on available funding. The first priority is to improve buildings in the historic district. The second priority is for historic commercial buildings along gateway streets and the third priority is for the remaining Downtown area as shown.
