GMP Announces Meredith Facade & Site Improvement Program


MEREDITH — The Greater Meredith Program, a community organization seeking to enhance economic vitality, historical and cultural heritage, and town-wide beautification, has announced that it will again offer a Façade & Site Improvement Program.

Its aim is to offer assistance to property owners and merchants striving to promote and preserve the greater Meredith community. The Greater Meredith Program Design Committee invites those who qualify to apply for design assistance up to a value of $3,000. An example of a previous GMP Façade Improvement can be seen on Phu Jee's Restaurant on Main Street.

Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received assistance. Applications must adhere to the following criteria: Façade or site must be within Meredith; proposed improvements must be visible from the street and must embrace the Façade & Site Improvement Design Committee Guidelines. Projects are to be submitted to the Design Committee and only one application per applicant may be submitted for 2014.

The following points will be considered by the GMP Design Committee: visual impact of the improvements and their overall effect, the historical significance of the property and the ability of the GMP to leverage its funding with other sources.

Applications must be received by the end of November and successful applicants will be notified in January.
