In brief: Carlisle revises facade restoration program
Carlisle Borough Council recently approved revisions to the borough's commercial facade program offered through the Redevelopment Authority, including changing the name to Carlisle Streetview.
The program offers grants up to $12,000, with the applicant required to provide a minimum 25 percent cash match. The eligible area includes the historic district; properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places, or eligible for listing; and property included on the Cumberland County historic sites inventory.
The goal of the program, which has been active for many years, is to “create and maintain a pleasant and attractive downtown commercial district by assisting owners maintain building façades,” according to program guidelines.
