Business Facade Program

As part of Region of Queens Municipality’s plans to revitalize its downtown cores, Council began the process of spending financial resources re-investing in our community. In 2018-2019 fiscal year, Council budgeted $25,000 to invest in a local business façade program and an additional $15,000 was approved by the Province of Nova Scotia. In 2019-2020, 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 will continue in 2020-2021 and cumulatively result in total investments, matched by private sector businesses, well in excess of $200,000 – changing the face of businesses throughout Queens County.
