The East Aldine District goal is to improve the Quality of Life for residents of the district, and that includes the visual appearance of the area. To that end, the business and economic committee, headed by board member Joyce Wiley, has proposed a new program for businesses, to clean, remodel, and improve the appearance of their physical buildings and landscape. The Program is known as the Business Improvement Grant program, or BIG acronym.
The District has established and funded the program, and will provide matching grant funds to eligible businesses, developers, and individuals within the East Aldine District boundaries.
Commercial Exterior Projects to be considered for Grants include but are not limited to Exterior Painting, Parking Lot Repairs or improvements, and Power Washing.
Qualified grantees include any commercial lot or structure located within the District boundaries. Residential properties and District Board, Staff, and their families are not eligible.
