Lindsey Wooten – The Wayne Main Street Design Committee announces the upcoming application period of the Wayne Main Street Design Services program. An information meeting for business and building owners who are located in the Main Street district will be held on Monday, April 13th, 5:30 p.m. at the Wayne Fire Station. Wayne Main Street’s Executive Director, Lindsey Wooten, will present information about the Design Services program and show the “Building Basics” webinar by the Michigan Main Street Center.
The program is one of the services offered to Wayne Main Street as a Michigan Main Street Select Level community.
In the first five years of the program, Wayne Main Street will receive design training and consultation services by the State Historic Preservation Office to help maintain and enhance downtown Wayne’s historic integrity. Individualized design assistance for façade improvements of downtown buildings is part of the Main Street Design Services. Wayne Main Street will award up to three services per year for five years, with a maximum of 15 services. Services include a site visit by the Michigan Main Street Design Specialist, meeting with the property owner, schematic drawings detailing the proposed façade improvements, paint samples, example photographs, and additional information needed to complete the work. Each service is valued at $2000-3000 each.
The application deadline for Design Services is May 22, 2015. To be eligible for this service, the property owner/business owner must attend the Building Basics Workshop. The Workshop will educate attendees on the Main Street program and its Four Point ApproachⓇ to downtown revitalization. This will be the only time this webinar will be presented this year. Information will also be given on how to apply for design services and what must be included with the application. US 12 Bar and Grill, Dairy Queen and one other property on Wayne Rd were awarded design services last year.
