With a grant from Erie County Gaming Revenue Authority and additional funding from Erie County’s Act 137 program, UPMC Healthplan, and Marquette Savings Bank, Our West Bayfront is implementing its first Renaissance Block project at Gridley Park. OWB is offering property owners adjacent to Gridley Park matching grants of up to $5,000 for exterior repairs and enhancements. By clustering these improvements on a single block, the program is aimed to create a visible impact, encouraging neighborhood pride and additional investments in the community.
26 property owners expected to participate in the first 18 months. Partial funding will be received for roof repairs, sidewalk repairs, porch repairs, landscaping, siding, painting, and various other external improvements. Funding must be matched by the property owner. If you are looking for opportunities for your block please contact us!
