In the news: Sykesville HDC to review applications for Community Legacy Grant

From The Advocate, June 17:

“The town has received a Community Legacy grant in the amount of $50,000 from the State of Maryland’s Division of Neighborhood Revitalization. The grant is specifically for facade improvement of commercial and business properties and ADA accessibility changes…

The grant is part of a 50/50 incentive program, where the business owner pays half of the cost for improvements and the town pays the remainder…

Each business that applies for access to grant funding must first have all improvements approved by the town’s Historic District Commission, [Ivy] Wells explained. After they submit their application to Wells, the improvement plans, along with the application, are sent to Maryland’s Department of Housing and Community Development. The department then submits all applications to the Maryland Historic Trust to ensure all planned improvements meet historical preservation guidelines.”
