Facade Revitalization Program
The Downtown Facade Revitalization Grant Program seeks to increase the economic visibility of Downtown Granite Falls by improving the aesthetics of the buildings, improving signage, and creating sense of “place”. Facade improvements make an aesthetic impact, improving the appearance of individual buildings and consequently entire commercial districts. Highly visible investments in commercial properties not only improve residents’ and visitors’ perceptions of an area, they also spur improvements by nearby businesses and attract new businesses.
