The Community Development Department has identified San Antonio Village (area shown in blue) as a target area in need of revitalization. The following program is currently being offered to area property owners:
Neighborhood Beautification Program
The Neighborhood Beautification Program offers grants of up to $10,000 to qualified property owners located in San Antonio Village. The grants assist with exterior improvements, such as painting, stucco, driveways, and landscaping. Property owners, who are applying for assistance for painting, must select from a specific color palet. The cost to install drought tolerant landscaping in the front yard may also be covered under the program if it is incidental to other improvements. However, the property owner must choose from one of the City's water efficient landscape design concepts. See the program flyer for more details.
Commericial Facade Improvement Program
The City offers a commercial facade improvement program for commercial properties located in the Eastern portion of the Village (see brochure for details). Unfortunately, funding for program in Fiscal Year 2016/17 has already been exhausted. Contact the CDBG Division at (562) 929-5951 for more information and to place your name on the interest list. The program provides a 0% interest, deferred loan up to $50,000 per property. To qualify, the commercial property must contain businesses that primarily cater to the local surrounding neighborhood, such as retail stores, markets, or beauty salons.
