VICTORVILLE – The City of Victorville is soon going to offer up to $50,000 for facade improvements to businesses located in Old Town.
The program is an effort to preserve the historic Old Town Route 66 area, promote revitalization of existing commercial buildings, and stimulate private investment to create new development.
The facade improvement program is just one element in Victorville’s strategy to revitalize the area.
The city is in the process of establishing a Community Revitalization Investment Authority (CRIA) – an economic and affordable housing tool that will be used to finance the revitalization of Old Town Victorville.
Only commercial properties located within the outlined map area are eligible to apply.
Improvements may include, but are not limited to:
- new signage;
- new awnings;
- exterior lights;
- anti-graffiti treatment;
- ADA enhancements.
The program is in the process of being developed and more information will soon be available. For any questions, contact the Economic Development Department at (760) 955-5032.
