CUBA CITY, Wis. — Cuba City leaders have approved funding for a downtown facade improvement program that will provide property owners with grants or loans to improve their building fronts.

The program will provide a 60% matching reimbursement of up to $5,000 for improvements to exterior facades, signs and architectural features on commercial and business properties along Main Street between Lafayette and Yuba streets, according to a press release.

The council also established a $9,000 revolving loan program that will finance up to 50% of the total cost of eligible projects. Loans will be from $1,500 to $5,000, accrue 1% interest annually and must be repaid within three years.

The city’s previous downtown improvement efforts, which included the renovation of 12 building fronts, received state recognition in 2017.
