Michael Stewart (pictured with Sue, Steve, Mayor Eisaman and Barb) and Ernie Vallozzi received $5,000 towards restoration to their building front. Improvements included repainting and updates.
These two projects represent a total of 12 projects completed under the City's Facade Grant Program. In total, $26,000 in grant funding and $56,000 in private funding resulted in $82,000 in physical improvements to buildings in the downtown area.
In November 2005, the City adopted the student home ordinance as a proactive approach to protect the health, safety and welfare of students and residents in our neighborhoods. The City's goal is to have students housed in homes or apartments in compliance with proper building codes, i.e., fire detection systems, etc. Additional concerns include overcrowding and the impact additional parking needs will have on neighborhoods that already have limited on-street parking.
Requirements for student homes include but are not limited to:
- registration by landlords with the Planning Department before August 1st each year for issuance of a 1-year student home permit based upon an approved code compliance inspection of the premises
- student homes cannot be located within 500 feet of another student home with the exception of student homes located in the Downtown District
- no more than five (5) students may occupy a student home
- a dwelling occupied by two or less graduate students does not constitute a student home
- adequate off-street parking approval(s) from the Planning Department
