Erie City Councilman Dave Brennan, in partnership with the Northwestern Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, the Erie Downtown Partnership and Preservation Erie, is hosting a Facade Improvement Workshop November 13, 2014, 8 am to 12 noon at the UPMC Health Plan – Community Room, 109 Boston Store Place, Erie.
The workshop is FREE and is designed to assist property owners and tenants with facade improvements that will enhance the character of their building and will include programs on façade design, restoration, repair, historic tax credits, and funding. Improving your building facade will show your customers that you care about your neighborhood and want to provide a more welcoming environment for residents and visitors to LIVE, WORK, PLAY, and SHOP!
