MEDINA – Downtown building owners in Medina are invited to an 8 a.m. meeting on Tuesday at City Hall to learn about the $335,000 Main Street grant approved last December for Medina.

The Orleans County Chamber of Commerce is administering the funds. Building owners can receive up to $50,000 in matching grant funds for building improvements.

Some of the eligible projects include facade improvements, masonry, windows, doors, signs, awnings, interior work, plumbing, electrical, walls/floors/doors, roof, foundation and structural work.

Chamber officials say the grant gives building owner an opportunity to improve their property while also contributing to the revitalization of Medina.

A committee of community members will review proposals from building owners to determine which ones are approved for the grant.

The meeting Tuesday is in the main meeting room at City Hall, 600 Main St.
