Chatfield Heritage Preservation Commission and Economic Development Authority announce historic downtown facade improvement grants

Posted in Chatfield Features

CHATFIELD, MN- In conjunction with Preservation Month, the Chatfield Heritage Preservation Commission (HPC) and the Economic Development Authority have established a façade improvement grant program for Chatfield’s historic downtown commercial district. Downtown commercial properties meeting the eligibility criteria will qualify for up to $2,500 without a match requirement or up to $10,000 with a $7,500 match. Eligible project items include permanent improvements that enhance the appearance of Chatfield’s historic downtown and the general character of the building such as tuck pointing, restoration of doors and windows, replacement of decorative features, and the removal of non-historic features.

In a collaborative partnership, the Chatfield HPC will review individual applications for historic appropriateness and the EDA will administer and promote the program. The program is funded with $30,000 from the EDA’s “development fund” which is a part of the Rochester Half-Cent Sales Tax extension in which Chatfield received $297,543.84.

“The city wanted to support noticeable improvements in our core historic downtown,” said Chatfield Mayor Russell Smith. “We hope that this small incentive will accomplish some great improvements” he continued.

Anyone interest in the program should contact the Chatfield EDA at (507) 867-3810. The application materials are located on the EDA page of the city’s website: www.ci.chatfield.mn.us.
