The City of Edmonton has expanded its Window Repair Program to include all Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) across the city.
Damaged windows can significantly impact the curb appeal and, ultimately, the success of local businesses. As a result, earlier this year the City launched the Window Repair Program to provide additional support for property and business owners in dealing with graffiti and vandalized windows.
The City has allocated $500,000 for the grant program, which covers 50 per cent of costs for eligible repairs up to a maximum of $2,500, and approximately one-quarter has been dispersed to local businesses so far. The funding will continue until it has been fully allocated.
Eligible BIAs include 124 Street, Beverly, Chinatown, Downtown, Fort Road, French Quarter, Kingsway, North Edge, Northwest Industrial, Stony Plain Road, and Crossroads. The Old Strathcona Business Association and Alberta Avenue Business Association previously received $167,500 and $60,000 respectively to create and administer their own window repair programs. Those BIAs will be eligible for the expanded program once they have used up their allotted funding.
