Building and Business Improvement Program

Facade improvements,Downtown Impact Map storefront rehabs, upper-floor renovations, streetscape enhancements — all are eligible for assistance through JRC’s Building and Business Improvement Program. The program’s goal is to partner with private property owners in making downtown buildings more beautiful and functional for modern uses.

Since 2006, the JRC has contributed to facade improvements at over 36 downtown properties, has assisted with the creation of 13 upper-floor residential units, and upgraded over 16 retail and office spaces. All of this work has occurred within a targeted area to maximize impact and spur additional private investment.
