Marysville neighborhoods and downtown neighboring businesses are invited to apply for Community Beautification Grants form the city. Deadline for application is Friday, June 28.
"Well-kept neighborhoods and businesses areas provide benefits to both residents and visitors," Mayor Jon Nehring said. "They are safer, healthier places that the City of Marysville is proud to support."
Grant funds can be used to complete community landscaping, neighborhood cleanup of common or publicly visible areas, or other projects to enhance community quality of life. Businesses can apply for funding for exterior improvements such as façade, sign or other beautification projects.
First-time recipients are eligible for up to $7,500, while previous recipients can apply for up to $5,000. So that more areas of the city can be improved, neighborhoods that have received funds twice are no longer eligible. Applicants must be within Marysville city limits to qualify. Businesses located between the south city limit to 8th Street and the west city limit east to Alder are also eligible to apply. Applications that include multiple businesses are encouraged.
Projects approved for funding must be completed by Oct. 1, 2019.
