Business Facade Program

As part of Region of Queens Municipality’s plans to revitalize its downtown cores, Council began the process of spending more time and financial resources re-investing in our community, while still looking externally for new development. As an initial start to renewing our downtowns in Liverpool and Caledonia, Council budgeted $25,000 to invest in a local Business Façade Program during the fiscal year 2018-2019 and an additional $15,000 was approved by the Province of Nova Scotia. The following year, Council agreed to invest a further $25,000 and widen the geographical scope to all commercial properties anywhere in the county. The Business Façade Program has continued annually since – changing the face of businesses throughout Queens County.

The Municipality will fund up to 50% of approved application costs, net of HST, to a maximum of $5,000 per project, subject to satisfactory completion of the approved work, and timely submission of final claim documentation. Most commercial properties are eligible to upgrade many aspects of their visible appearance; from siding and window replacement, to signage and planters - improving your kerb-side appeal is the aim.
