Rental Incentive Program & Retail Enhancement Program
The goal of the Rental Incentive Program and Retail Enhancement Program is to provide financial incentive to targeted businesses that are new to downtown Jamestown—with an eastern boundary of Prendergast Avenue, western boundary of Monroe Street, northern boundary of Sixth Street and southern boundary of First Street. This aid is provided to help reduce monthly lease rates and/or assist in refurbishing retail space.
Please follow the links below for more information and the application. The first round of grants have been awarded. Labyrinth Press Company received both retail enhancment and rental incentive funding for its expansion project. The Jamestown Gazette also received funding from both streams after opening its headquarters at 215 Spring Street. Patient's Pharmacy, Hall & Piazza and Spoto, Slater & Sirwatka received retail enhancement grants following building purchases on North Main Street, East Third Street and East Fourth Street..
The second round of applications are currently under review.
The JRC will continue receiving applications for additional rental incentive projects and retail enhancement projects on a rolling basis.
