On May 25th of 2004, the City Commission of Lynn Haven adopted the Community Redevelopment Plan. On April 11, 2005, the Community Redevelopment Board instituted the Storefront Assistance Program for property owners in the redevelopment area. The purpose of the program is to promote the renovation, maintenance and rehabilitation of commercial storefronts within the community redevelopment area.
The program is administered by the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) Director and provides assistance in three primary areas:
- First, the program has resulted in the preparation of these Storefront Guidelines to be used as a reference manual for individuals participating in the program.
- Second, an application and design review process has been created to assist individuals who choose to enter the program and to review the proposed facade modifications.
- Third, funding has been made available for individuals wishing to participate in the program to help offset the cost of preparing architectural plans and the modification of the facade itself.
