The City of Irving has a vision for the Heritage District to become a destination for visitors seeking unique restaurants, retail options, art and culture. To enhance the area, property and business owners can apply for the city’s Enhancement Incentive Programs.
The city has three programs: Corridor Enhancement, Downtown Façade and Downtown Sign Enhancement. These programs are designed to improve, restore or renovate existing buildings and establishments. If approved, applicants are eligible to receive from $5,000 to $25,000 in reimbursements or up to 50% of the total cost, depending on the program and project.
Applicants can be owners or current tenants of existing buildings that front on Irving Boulevard or Second Street from Sowers Road on the west to Strickland Plaza on the east, including all connecting streets that run between these two roadways. Applicants for the Corridor Enhancement Program must be located within TIF #2 (Irving Blvd TIF) The building must be occupied by an existing business, or the owner must be seeking to attract a new business if the structure is currently vacant. Zoning regulations and other eligibility requirements will apply.
