Jul 19, 2019
The Downtown Façade Improvement Program intends to encourage property and business owners within the Downtown Self-Supported Municipal Improvement District (SSMID) to renovate their building fronts and other exteriors plainly visible to the public, in order to promote more renovations and high quality exterior improvements. Project costs are shared by the Downtown SSMID Commission and the City of Cedar Rapids.
Funds are still available for projects that begin in 2019! To start the application process, reach out to Downtown Executive Director Jesse Thoeming at firstname.lastname@example.org for an initial consultation.
Recently completed projects include the Armstrong Centre, the Clock House building, the Gatto Building, Quarter Barrel Arcade & Brewery, Theatre Cedar Rapids (pictured below), the Smulekoff's Building and Town Centre.
