NEWBURGH - The City of Newburgh Department of Planning & Development is pleased to announce that funding for storefront / façade improvement is available for businesses and/or mixed use properties along Broadway. Properties that are entirely residential are NOT eligible to receive these funds.
Eligible projects should be targeted toward storefront improvements, lighting, signage etc. Applicants are required to match public funds and expected to maintain both ownership of the property and the upgrades to the façade during a 7-year loan deferment period. Preference will be given to applications from owners of consecutive buildings. Projects that are within the City of Newburgh’s Historic District will require approval from the Architectural Review Commission (ARC) before commencing.
The deadline for submitting applications for the program is 4 p.m., June 28, 2013. Applications may be picked up at the Planning & Development Office or downloaded from www.cityofnewburgh-ny.gov. To submit or request an application or learn more information, contact Courtney Kain, Director of Community Development, City of Newburgh, City Hall, 83 Broadway, Newburgh, NY 12550 or call (845) 569-9400.
