Morenci Chamber offering facade grants 2011.07.20

Written by David Green.

Morenci Area Chamber of Commerce members voted last week to again offer grants to members for the improvement of building exteriors.

The purpose of the program is to enhance the appearance of the community’s commercial buildings and to help the property owner in financing the improvements.

Property owners can be reimbursed up to $250 per Chamber member for any eligible project. The grant is for materials only and not labor costs.

The chamber grant will be issued upon completion based on invoices submitted to the Chamber board. Applications are subject to Chamber board approval. Members are encouraged to shop locally for supplies whenever possible.

Improvement projects could include:

• Exterior painting;

• New windows and exterior door;

• Sign replacement;

• Awnings.

The deadline for applications is Sept. 1.

Submit applications to Leasa Slocum at city hall. For more information, contact Chamber president Brad Frederick at 517/605-1020.

The Chamber will review applications at a future meeting.
