The town of Babylon has set up a grant program that will cover the costs Copiague business owners incur while upgrading their storefronts to standards set by the town last year. Developers helped fund the program in exchange for zoning exemptions for their other projects around town. The program, the Downtown Copiague Facade Improvement Program, is the latest stage in a larger effort to revitalize the town’s modest commercial corridor and make it more pedestrian friendly. The money will be put toward updates of facades according to standards developed by firm In.Site:Architecture. Businesses have to apply, and if selected will get reimbursements for 75 percent of the costs of the improvements, up to $25,000. [Newsday]
