facade

Are you wanting to spruce up your building and business façade with the addition of some decorative details?  Hankering for a fresh coat of paint on your building?  Pining for updated signage, awnings, lighting? Not sure how to pay for any of this yourself in today’s tough economic times?

The FACADE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM, a collaboration between the Downtown Maple Business Improvement Association and the City of Maple Ridge, provides grants to property and business owners in Downtown Maple Ridge to renovate, restore or redesign their commercial building facades and storefronts. The purpose of this program is to continue the revitalization of the downtown core by improving the physical appearance of the buildings and therefore making downtown a more inviting and interesting place to shop, walk, live and play.

We encourage you to read the Façade Improvement Program material on this page and call Flori Chaykowski (DMRBIA Executive Director) to discuss any proposed improvements to your building. The list of eligible improvements in extensive, the application is simple and straightforward, and the dreaded red-tape is kept to a minimum, even with the District's requirements.
