The widening of U.S. Highway 1 was completed during 2010, and a grand reopening celebration was held to commemorate this notable achievement.
Stylish lighting, picturesque landscaping, aesthetic signage and sidewalk enhancements were incorporated into the project. Through the Agency’s Façade Improvement Grant Program, a significant number of businesses applied for and received funding in the form of matching grants for renovating the exteriors of their properties.
As U.S. 1 improvements continue to make an impact in this area, additional business owners are seeking grant funding to refurbish their properties as well. The Agency looks forward to assisting local businesses with the façade grant application and grant administration processes.
