A downtown revitalization program proved to be very popular with downtown property owners hoping to take advantage of a joint city-private organization effort, a Downtown Wapakoneta Partnership member says.
FaĂ§ade Improvement Committee Chair Sue Siesel provided Wapakoneta City Council members during Mondayâ€™s meeting with an update of the program as its first year nears its conclusion.
â€śSix downtown buildings had significant improvement directly resulting from the FaĂ§ade Improvement Program,â€ť a report from Siesel said. â€śIt is the hope of the Downtown Wapakoneta Partnership (DWP) that this program will serve as a reflection of the pride and commitment to ongoing investment in a thriving historic downtown Wapakoneta that currently employs more than 650 people.â€ť
