Business Facade Improvement Program Survey

  1. Introduction

    As part of our continuous economic development endeavors, the Village of Deerfield would like you to participate in a BUSINESS FAÇADE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM SURVEY.   In partnership with the DBR Chamber of Commerce, the Village would like to gauge interest in a 50% rebate program.  The rebate program would cover up to half of the cost of eligible building and site improvements (up to $100,000) to assist property and business owners to improve the character and physical appearance of their buildings. The program’s intent is to create a positive visual impact and stimulate private investment leading to economic revitalization in the Village’s business districts.  

    Eligible improvements must be located on the building’s main entrance and/or visible from the frontage of a building or right-of-way, and enhance the appearance of the building.  Program funds would be used exclusively for exterior improvements.

    All responses due by Friday, October 8.
