Reversing the deterioration of commercial structures while creating aesthetically pleasing environments.

The intent of Operation Facelift is to:

  • reverse the deterioration of commercial structures
  • promote consistency in design, and
  • create aesthetically pleasing environments while assisting property owners with the appropriate exterior rehabilitation of their buildings and bring them up to City Code

Tenants or property owners in target areas are encouraged to apply for grants that will renovate, restore, and redesign commercial properties.

Funding is made possible through Housing and Urban Development
