The Facade Improvement Program for the Mt. Sterling Uptown Business District is designed to stimulate downtown investment, maintain and expand the economic contribution of the Uptown district, preserve the historical character of Uptown buildings, and initiate aesthetic improvements. The program provides financial incentives and design assistance to property and business owners to be matched by their equal or greater investment of private funds for the purpose of restoring/renovating commercial storefronts and replacing deteriorated or poor quality commercial signs and awnings.
