The Terrell CBD Facade Improvement Program

The Terrell CBD Facade Improvement Program is a revitalization effort designed to enhance the unique identity of Terrell through historic preservation and community involvement, improve the visual and historic appearance of downtown Terrell buildings, encourage increased investment in the CBD, and promote additional commercial activity downtown, in order to create a vibrant thriving Central Business District (CBD). Projects are limited to front facades on Highway U.S. 80 (Moore Ave.) between Hattie and Gardner Streets, south of High Street and north of Cottage Street. As an economic incentive, the Terrell City Council has adopted the following facade improvement program for the historic Central Business District.

Benefits to Owners:

  • Assistance for professional services to help design/engineer façade
    improvements will be available on an as-needed basis.
  • 50% reimbursement (up to $5,000) of construction costs; starting with
    reimbursements after October 1, 2016; 50% reimbursement of
    construction costs up to $5,000 per floor and per building side.
  • Waiver of any/all related city permit fees.
  • Up to three (3) years of reimbursement or abatement of any increase in
    city only ad valorem taxes attributable to the facade improvement.
