City to help upgrade business looks

Shakopee has changed its loan program for commercial exteriors in hopes of encour­aging owners to launch upgrades.

There’s a forgivable loan for facade improvements in which the city would pay for half the cost up to $15,000.

Changes must be visible from outside, though they can include roofs. Planting of trees, painting, lighting, awnings, sign­age and restoration of historic details can be included.

Forgiveness of the loan would happen over five years, with 20 percent lopped off each year. If the building is sold, a new set of rules applies.

The city will post more details on its website at development.cfm.
