Benton OKs Financial Assistance Program for Building Improvements

BENTON – The Benton City Council approved the Benton Downtown TIF Façade Improvement Program at Monday night’s meeting.

The program will provide financial assistance to property owners or tenants seeking to renovate or restore commercial buildings exteriors, and is intended to enhance the functionality and aesthetic appeal of existing buildings in Benton, as well as achieve overall community beautifications through the improvement of storefronts and individual building assets.

The city hopes to make a positive statement through the program about the Benton business climate to the community and visitors, plus existing and potential business tenants. Grants funds are made available through the TIF fund, which is administered by the city.
