What improvements are not eligible?

Ineligible projects include roof improvements that are not “part of the façade” (i.e. do not face the public way; the portion of mansard roofs, for example, facing street frontage are eligible), parking lots, landscaping, non-permanent fixtures, security systems, personal property, interior window coverings, equipment, business advertisement, any improvements not visible from the public right-of-way or public vantage point (with the exception of patios), and any improvements deemed to be inconsistent with adopted City Plans or Policies. Materials shall not diminish the integrity of buildings or districts eligible for Local, State or National Register of Historic Places. Potential applicants should consult with City staff before applying to confirm project eligibility.
