Jeff Loney, manager of economic development says the town is excited to offer the opportunity to continue to assist businesses and property owners improve the look and viability of the downtown.

Eligible businesses or buildings must be located within the Community Improvement Area.

Projects must also follow guidelines which encourage a more cohesive and inviting look and feel in the downtown core.
