Siloam Springs, ARK. — Main Street Siloam Springs is pleased to again offer the Gloria McEnroe Façade Renovation Grant. The Gloria McEnroe Façade Renovation Grant is offered by Main Street Siloam Springs to property owners who wish to make exterior improvements to their buildings. Named after a long-time, dedicated board member and Siloam Springs citizen, the Gloria McEnroe Grant allocates up to $1,000 per building at a two-to-one rate for exterior improvements, with priority for the 2015 grant cycle being given to outdoor business signage. The 2015 Application is due by 5:00p.m. on Friday, July 3rd and projects must be completed by the end of the year.
The restoration of commercial building exteriors is an important component of the revitalization of our Main Street district. It is Main Street’s wish to work closely with downtown businesses and building owners to offer technical and financial assistance to ensure that, to the greatest extent feasible, our significant architectural heritage is preserved and rescued from inappropriate modernizations and that the distinctive, original architectural features of our buildings are maintained, reconstructed and rehabilitated.
Previous recipients of the Gloria McEnroe are: 28 Springs Restaurant, the Café on Broadway, Dogwood Literacy Council, Occasions, TC Screenprinting, Lokalen Frame Shop, Pour Jons, Fratelli’s Pizzeria, Two Gals’ Junk, the Chamber of Commerce, Honeysuckle, and Dena Dickinson Law Office. Free consultation and design assistance is available through Main Street Siloam Springs and Main Street Arkansas.
