The exciting traditions of Ybor City continue to attract
millions of visitors to the national historic landmark district each
year. Hand-rolled cigars, international cuisine and truly unique special
events - it's all here in Ybor City. Recent historic building
preservation and facade improvement initiatives are helping to ensure
that the area's unique architectural character remains alive and well,
and new business ventures are helping to grow the local economy. Whether
it's food, fun, or business opportunities, Ybor City has something
adventurous to suit every style and flavor.
Façade Improvement Program provides property owners with financial
assistance (grant) to improve the appearance of their properties in designated
areas of Tampa's Community Redevelopment Area (CRAs). In Ybor City properties are
prioritized based on the program matrix and
qualified property types. Application deadline for Ybor City CRAs is
November 30, 2012.
