The National Main Street Center and Texas Main Street Program have announced that Texarkana will be a pilot community for Main Street America’s first Facade Improvement Program with Main Street Texarkana.
Main Street Texarkana will be working with local businesses and property owners to make improvements on their storefronts and buildings. Selected property owners will receive a combination of a grant and loan, which requires a local match of funds. Design review will take place over the next few weeks, with the first projects to get underway before the end of the year.
Funding for the project will be provided by the 1772 Foundation.
