Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry today announced that nine local businesses will receive 2017 Commercial Façade Grants to improve their properties. This year's recipients are all located on well-traveled urban corridors that the city is working to revitalize.
The local organizations include Ziegler's Window Coverings, Legacy Heating & Air Conditioning, 07 Pub, Shine and Hardin LLP, St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store, Headwaters Counseling, Tom Steele Tires, Punch Films and Yellow Retirement Communities. Together, they will receive approximately $218,000 in City funding and have pledged to contribute just more than $938,000 in private investment to do everything from install new windows to paint and add new stone exteriors.
