Get Ready for the Next Round of Facade Improvement Grants

Year 3 of Downtown Facade Improvement Grant Program to Begin November 1, 2021

O'Fallon Corridor

November is fast approaching and so is another opportunity to apply for the Downtown District Façade Improvement Program – a matching grant program to promote exterior renovations of commercial properties in Downtown O’Fallon. The City of O’Fallon is excited to announce that the third Façade Improvement Grant application period will open on November 1, 2021.

The program has been a great success and, so far, the City has been able to award grants for eight impressive projects. The first round of façade improvements included RTI Barge at 127 W. 1st St., 1st St. Lounge at 119 W. 1st St., Steven Mueller Florist at 101 W. 1st St., The Outdoorsman at 127 E. 1st St., and Lehman’s Barber Shop at 123 E. State St. To read more about the success of this first round, click here.

Round two included three projects total.

Recently completed of the three is the Kruep Construction building at 121 E. State St., with a whole new roofline, gooseneck lighting, an awning, stonework, and new windows.
