4 downtown businesses receive facade grants

Staff report

Four downtown businesses have received grant funding through the Paducah Main Street Facade Grant Program. Paducah Main Street, a division of the Paducah Planning Department, developed the program to benefit local business owners in the historic downtown district.

Cassitys' at 115 S. Second St., The Chocolate Factory at 109 Market House Square, Creatures of Habit at 406 Broadway, and McMurry & Livingston at 201 Broadway were chosen at the Aug. 21 meeting of the Paducah Main Street Design Committee.

The city of Paducah will match dollar-for-dollar the investment a downtown business owner makes on the exterior of property up to $1,000.  

"Paducah Main Street is dedicated to promoting and restoring downtown as a thriving, walkable, and welcoming community for living and working," said Melinda Winchester, Paducah Main Street manager. "One of the ways we can make that happen is with the Facade Grant Program. Its purpose is to provide a financial incentive to Paducah Main Street merchants and property owners to improve their buildings while retaining the historic character of the district."

Funds still are available for this fiscal year. Eligible improvements include (but are not limited to) masonry or mortar joint repair, window or door repair/replacement, repair or purchase of new awnings, and exterior painting or lighting. Improvements may qualify on a case-by-case basis.

To apply, an owner must fill out a one-page application and submit a cost estimate and photographs. Contact Winchester or Planning Director Steve Ervin at 270-444-8690 for more information. The next application review meeting will be Sept. 18.
