Curb Appeal Grant
Curb Appeal Grants
The City of Platteville Redevelopment Authority administers several programs to help strengthen and enhance the downtown area. Attractive building facades and properties support and encourage local businesses and can have a significant effect on the attractiveness and marketability of the surrounding area. To encourage business owners to reinvest in the downtown area, the City of Platteville Redevelopment Authority is offering financial incentives, through small matching grants, to assist in the exterior improvement of these properties.
Whenever possible, applicants are strongly encouraged to use local contractors to complete all tasks associated with their property renovation. This will not only help garner support to continue this program, but more importantly help boost our local economy.

Downtown Revitalization Plan
The Platteville Redevelopment Authority and the Platteville Main Street program lead an effort to create a Downtown Revitalization Plan. The plan includes a market analysis, housing study, land redevelopment strategy, and design ideas for the downtown area. The result of this process is a general redevelopment strategy that will help provide a long-range revitalization program that will serve to enhance the downtown.
