Program adds incentive to improve local business buildings

AEDC logoA new facade improvement program, being implemented by the Albion Economic Development Corp. (AEDC), is intended to provide an incentive for owners of business buildings to make improvements in those buildings.
AEDC Board of Directors voted last week to allocate $50,000 toward a new facade improvement program this year.
The new program is similar to a program initiated in 2011, but it was expanded this year to include both new and existing business buildings, and those outside of the downtown redevelopment area.
Business owners and tenants can apply for up to half the cost, or a maximum of $5,000 for qualifying business improvements.
