Hope this is the right place for this Thread.
Here is the deal. I'm looking for some input, ideas, and locations where the following had taken place.
You have a downtown where you have a road right of that goes up to the fronts of the buildings. As a result the street, curb, sidewalks can all be rehabed, and worked on using local, state, and federal money since there in the ROW.
What I wondering and looking for examples of is when property owners grant public ROW easements for the first 2-4 feet of their building (ie Facades). What this would then do is allow the City, Town, DDA, or others apply for funds to restore, and rehabe the facades using State, Local, or Federal dollars since they are not part of the public ROW.
Does anyone now of any community that has successfully done something like this?
