The City of Auburn knows the importance of appearances – especially when it comes to keeping our community appealing for residents and attractive to new businesses. Small-town charm defines our downtown area. Our historic and mid-century buildings provide a welcoming aesthetic to residents and visitors alike and encourages a close-knit community atmosphere. Maintaining the small-town appeal sometimes requires minor cosmetic improvements and renovations for many of these buildings.
While the charm is important, we also know that community is about more than appearances. That’s why our city supports local business owners looking for cosmetic touch-ups by helping them navigate city codes, including structure and color decisions.
Our city’s downtown façade improvement program makes the design and execution process simple for business owners. The efforts to team up with local businesses to implement façade improvements have resulted in multiple successes and building owners have taken renewed pride in their place in our community.
The downtown façade improvement program improves our community by encouraging Auburn residents and visitors to explore what our local businesses have to offer. In turn, buying locally enhances our community’s outlook. Keeping your sales tax dollars local ensures the city can provide services that make Auburn an even better place to live.
