Architecture Overview:

The City of Grinnell, Iowa began working with RDG Planning & Design to improve the facades of 13 different storefronts. Proposed work was reviewed by the State Historic Preservation Office and much of the funding was received in grants through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. The facade work includes masonry repair and renovation of the upper or lower storefront windows. Facades were taken back to their historic appearance with the additional new canvas awnings and new signage.
