GRANTS of up to $5000 will be available for Frankston business owners to put towards refurbishing their shopfronts.
The state government and council joint initiative is designed to help clean up the aesthetic of Frankston. Business owners can apply for the Facade Improvement Grant matched dollar-for-dollar per shopfront.
Frankston mayor Michael O’Reilly said “this is an awesome opportunity for business owners in a defined area of the Frankston city centre to receive assistance to improve the look and feel of their business.”
“Improving facades has proven to positively influence the perception of an area and encourage an overall improvement to a region’s economy, social and cultural environment, and safety,” he said.
“The grants program supports the creation of dynamic, vibrant, and culturally expressive shopfront improvements, and more appealing and interesting streetscapes attract people, business and investment into the Frankston city centre.”
