Downtown Sheridan

Owners of historic, commercial buildings located in traditional downtown districts are invited to submit a pre-application to determine eligibility for the Historic Architecture Assistance Fund by Feb. 1. The final application is due March 15.

If awarded, an architect will be assigned to work with the applicant. Typical projects include a building assessment, structural analysis, analysis of building code and ADA requirements, and façade and signage schematic design.

Money is not available for physical repairs, the purchase of building materials or work by contractors.

 

The fund is available through Wyoming Main Street, which is a program of the Wyoming Business Council, the state’s economic development agency. Wyoming Main Street assists its member communities with downtown revitalization efforts through technical assistance and grant funding.

Each Main Street community leverages the power of the National Main Street Center’s four-point approach to revitalization.

Applications can be found at wyomingbusiness.org/content/applications

For more information, call Historic Preservation Architect Linda Kiisk, historic preservation architect for the State Historic Preservation Office, at 307-777-7566, or Desiree Brothe, community development coordinator for the Wyoming Business Council, at 307-631-6137.
