Downtown Façade
In 2008, the Zionsville Town Council established the Downtown Façade Rehabilitation Program with an appropriation of $50,000. The purpose of the program is to offer monies to property owners in the downtown village business district as an incentive to rehabilitate their building facades.

The program’s annual appropriation of $50,000 of funds come from the Food and Beverage Tax. These funds from the Food and Beverage Tax are specifically earmarked by the Town Council for use in downtown improvements.

Committee Oversight
A 7-person Zionsville Architectural Review Committee has been established by the Town Council to administer the program. The committee will administer the program as summarized in the Four Step Process document and in accordance with the Architectural Façade Design Guidelines. The façade grant program provides for a reimbursement of the owner’s funds for up to 40% of the project total.

Eligibility for the program should initially meet 3 criteria:
  • The property must be in or contiguous to the Zionsville Business District.
  • The rehabilitation must be visible from a public way.
  • The rehabilitation project must contribute to the enhancement and character of the building as well as the Zionsville Business District.
All applications must be approved by the Zionsville Architectural Review Committee prior to starting work. The project must be completed within 1 year. The program is for substantial façade restoration or repair (partial restoration projects such as simple maintenance, painting, etc., with rare exceptions, will not be considered).
