Brownsburg Businesses Get Facelift Thanks to New Grant Program

Share this document

Three established Brownsburg business properties will get a facelift with help from the Town of Brownsburg’s new Façade Improvement Grant. Brownsburg Town Council and the Brownsburg Improvement Committee recently approved the award of grants to Walker-Bray Tax and Cochran Commercial Properties.

A new economic development tool, the Façade Improvement Grant is a matching grant program that will help businesses located in or adjacent to the Town's Tax Increment Financing (TIF) districts make façade improvements. The program is designed to add value to downtown Brownsburg’s commercial buildings with exterior enhancements such as painting, windows/doors, tuck pointing, awnings or canopies, historic or architectural restoration, shutters, signage, and landscaping.

Walker-Bray Tax was awarded $12,193 to help refurbish what was once an old residential property at 511 E. Main Street. Improvements include soffits and gutters, windows and doors, lighting, iron railing, landscaping, a privacy fence and replacement of an old tree.

Cochran Commercial Properties was awarded $8,695 to assist with renovations to 710 E. Main Street (formerly the Blanck Chevrolet facility) for the new home to Mowery Heating and Cooling Solutions. The building will be tuck pointed, patched, repainted and landscaped.

Cochran also was awarded $12,048 to help renovate the former Thrifty Supply located at 800 E. Main Street. The building is getting new windows, awnings and other exterior work.

The Façade Improvement Grant program utilizes TIF funds to match up to half of the project cost. The maximum grant amount is $15,000. Properties must remain primarily commercial and be maintained for a minimum of three years following completion of the façade work. Applications are reviewed by Town of Brownsburg staff and approved by the Brownsburg Improvement Committee before being considered by the Brownsburg Town Council.
