Request for Proposals – Williamston Downtown Acceleration Program

The Town of Williamston is soliciting proposals from design and landscaping firms to help design and implement a Landscape Plan for the Town of Williamston. This project is the first phase in of a multi-phase approach to the redevelopment of the local streetscape in downtown Williamston.
Respondents should have broad experience in landscape architecture and design, historic preservation, transportation, irrigation, and installation of landscape and hardscape projects.
The Town of Williamston is currently participating in the Main Street Program with oversight from Main Street South Carolina.  A branding effort and Master Plan have been adopted.

EW announces Phase II Facade Improvement Grant

Envision Williamston is pleased to announce that it is launching a second “Façade Improvement Grant Program,” this fall. It is intended to stimulate improvements to the exterior of commercial buildings within the Town of Williamston. The funding of this program is provided through the Palmetto Business Association in partnership with the Appalachian Regional Commission and Envision Williamston. A five-person Façade Improvement Steering Committee (FISC) will once again oversee the project.
If missed out on Phase I, you won’t want to left out this time! Grant awards can range from $500 to $2,000. You must match 50% of the total cost or more. For example, on a $4,000 sign or awning project, you would be eligible for a grant of up to $2,000. Your share would be only $2,000. That is a savings of $2,000 to you!
Eligible applicants include owners of commercial properties and owners/managers of businesses located within the Town of Williamston. Business owners/managers who are leasing a building for which improvements are proposed must submit a letter from the owner giving consent and approval of proposed project plans.
Eligible expenditures shall include expenses related solely to exterior improvements. Allowable improvements include exterior building improvements (cosmetic and/or structural), painting, signage, windows, and awnings which are visible from the street.
Apply today!! Applications will be accepted from September 27th through November 10, 2017.
Application forms and guidance can be found on the Envision Williamston website under “Programs.” For more information contact Sonya Crandall at sonyacew@gmail.com
