Canton Council Provides Funds for Beautification Projects
CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A successful City of Canton program is being funded again.
It encourages business owners to provide a nice outward appearance.
Council has OK’d $200,000 for the Storefront Reinvestment Program.
In its first three years, the program has spurred $1.1 million in window, masonry, awning and signage improvements.
The city provides an equal match for the first $25,000 spent.
Next time you’re downtown, check out Grapes in a Glass, Melange and the awning at the Arcadia Grille.
And there’s $100,000 for the Public Realm Program, for those areas adjacent to a business, like sidewalks or Streetscape features.
Mayor Tom Bernabei says the funding for both programs comes from Issue 13 Comprehensive Plan Economic Development funds.
