Update on the Saginaw Building Improvement Grant Program

Update on the Saginaw Building Improvement Grant Program

At last night’s Saginaw City Council Meeting (April 7, 2020), the Mayor and City Council heard a presentation and update on the success of the reinvestment in existing Saginaw businesses through the “Building Improvement Grant”. This innovative grant program provides matching grants to reimburse commercial property owners or business operators for Eligible Enhancements made to their properties. The program is for any commercial business in the City of Saginaw that is looking to enhance their existing site visually, or in ways that increase the viability of the property for business use. This includes uses allowed in the zoning classifications: Community Commercial, Neighborhood Commercial, Office Professional, Light Industrial, Heavy Industrial, and within Planned Developments.

There are 10 different categories of improvements that are eligible for consideration as part of this grant program. These include:

  1. Façade enhancements
  2. Interior building renovations
  3. Landscaping
  4. Lighting
  5. Parking areas and driveways
  6. Pedestrian amenities
  7. Signage
  8. Code compliance
  9. Demolition
  10. Public art installation
