County Executive Ike Leggett to Celebrate Success of Key Commercial Revitalization Projects in Burtonsville
Following the speaker’s program, the celebration will continue with the Taste of Burtonsville until 4 p.m. The Taste of Burtonsville will include a variety of food from some 15-20 restaurants, live music by three bands, face painting, balloon animals and several actors dressed as popular children’s characters.
The Neighborhood Revitalization Section’s Façade Improvement Program (FIP) helps property owners with costs to implement building and site improvements. Managed by DHCA’s Neighborhood Revitalization Section, the FIP encourages commercial property owners to update and enhance their property exteriors by offering up to a 50% reimbursement for costs for exterior building and site improvements, typically in exchange for a 15-year easement which controls the property’s exterior appearance.
DHCA’s Neighborhood Revitalization Section worked with three property owners as part of the Burtonsville Commercial Revitalization Program: Katz & Company Property Management; Site Realty and family-owned Seibel’s Restaurant. Nearly twenty businesses in leased or owned space benefitted from the improvements. The Department has also implemented a similar façade improvement program in Colesville, which it hopes to expand there as well as throughout the County.
More information about this FREE event and the Façade Improvement Program is available from County Calendar.
