The Commercial Façade Improvement Program is designed to stimulate exterior building improvements to commercial buildings within business districts throughout the City. The concept is to promote investment in designated areas throughout the City of West Allis, by providing a financial incentive for businesses and property owners to arrest the conditions of blight and invest in their property. The improvements should produce a visible change to the building facades. The program is funded with federal Community Development Block Grant Funds.
