If you own a commercial business and would like to spruce up the exterior of your office or location, the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) would like to help!
The Paint-Up & Signage Program was originally established by the CRA to encourage existing building owners or tenants to improve the exterior of their buildings through a new coat of paint, and was later expanded to include signage.
Now, 20 years later, it continues to be a great benefit many local businesses. Recent business owners include Phoenix Boxing Club and South Florida Disc and Spine.
The program allows the building owner or tenant to share the cost of adding signage to or painting an existing building with the CRA. To qualify for the Paint-Up & Signage Program, the structure must be located in the CRA District.
The CRA will provide a matching grant for up to 50% of the cost of approved exterior signage and painting projects. The applicant must submit a completed application accompanied by two estimates from licensed painters and/or sign companies and, if the proposed painting or signage is part of a larger renovation/addition project, a total project budget. Review and approval of the application may take up to four weeks to process.
“In addition to sprucing up the area and enhancing the look, feel, and vibe of a neighborhood, paint and signage improvements can also lead to increased property values and help spur redevelopment,” said Alexina Jeannite, CRA Community Engagement Director. “Programs like Paint-Up & Signage help advance the CRA’s mission of eliminating slum and blight and improving the attractiveness and quality of life for the residents of the CRA District and the City of Delray Beach as a whole.”
