The Fašade Improvement Program Grant is a new
grant developed by the City of Lufkin to assist property owners in
the Main Street Program area, also referred to as our Downtown. The
Main Street area is historically the center of Lufkin and was the
commercial hub for all types of businesses in years past. Bakeries,
liquor stores, furniture, flowers and food were in abundance on all
the streets of the downtown. Now the area hosts numerous law firms
and a smaller number of commercial uses but it is still a vibrant
center of activities brought to the Main Street area by a dynamic
organization known as the Main Street Program. Main Street works
with owners and occupants to put on activities like the Christmas
Parade, Banner Beautification program, Entertainment in the Park,
downtown Trick or Treating, Flag Day and Street Enhancement with
Flowers. Now Main Street will work with applicants interested in
improving the appearance of their building, working to restore the
structure back to a period that reflects the history of Lufkin. For
