New city Commercial Exterior Program aims to put face on economic development
May 30, 2018
The Sweet Home City Council last week unanimously approved a new Commercial Exterior Program.
Voting to approve the program during the council's regular meeting on May 22 were Bob Briana, Susan Coleman, Diane Gerson, James Goble, Lisa Gourley, Dave Trask and Mayor Greg Mahler.
The decision created rules allowing commercial property owners to access city funding to improve the exteriors of commercial buildings in Sweet Home.
Funding for the program is available through approximately $200,000 allocated for economic development projects in the fiscal 2017-18 budget, which ends June 30.
