Façade & Sign Improvement Program

The Valparaiso Façade & Sign Improvement Program is designed to promote the continued use and improvement of commercial buildings in the downtown area. It is intended to help property owners and commercial tenants to rehabilitate and restore the visible exterior of existing structures, to construct or enhance rear pedestrian entrances of buildings, and remove nonconforming signage and replace with new conforming signage. Improvements must meet criteria for appropriateness of design. Reimbursement grants are provided to property owners or commercial tenants in recognition of the positive impact that individual property improvements can have on the overall appearance, quality and vitality in areas of Valparaiso in need of redevelopment.
