Dear Property/Business Owner:
The property and business owners of the Town and Village of Victor recognize the importance of a vital, attractive business district. We all benefit when the properties are attractive and well maintained.
Started in 2006, the Façade Improvement Program has funded over 40 projects and provided $55,000 in grant funding. We are pleased to inform you that the Façade Improvement Program is back for 2015, offering grant funding for commercial buildings in the business district. The Program is administered by the Façade Improvement Committee with $20,000 in funding from the Local Development Corporation and the Urban Renewal Agency.
There is a designated target area for funding and if you have received this letter, your property is eligible. This is a matching grant program requiring the property owner to contribute 50% of the project costs and the remaining 50% will be awarded through the grant funds up to $2,000. The committee will award matching grants for façade improvement projects, those made to the exterior of the structure and visible from the public right of way. Projects may include door or window replacements, painting, signage or other improvements to the general exterior appearance of the property. The Committee will prioritize projects based on the degree they meet the façade improvement mission.
A detailed information packet is available on-line at www.victorldc.org or in hard copy form at the Village Hall. For additional information contact Kathy Rayburn, Executive Director, Victor Local Development Corporation at 742-5073 for further information. The deadline for all application submissions is May 15, 2015. Drop them off at Village Hall or mail to Victor LDC at 85 East Main Street, Victor NY 14564.
This is a great opportunity to improve the appearance of your property façade and add to the beauty and charm of our Village. We encourage you to pick up an application and apply for this program.
