Architecture Overview:

RDG prepared plans to improve about 20 different storefronts, which were reviewed and accepted by the State Historic Preservation Office. The City of Adel received much of the funding for the project in grants from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. Work included masonry repair, renovation of the upper or lower storefront windows and new canvas awnings and signage, returning storefronts to their historic appearance. The challenge in rehabilitation is anticipating the unknown conditions hidden in these historical buildings, however this project proved to jump-start investment in this classic Iowa community.
