Streetscapes in Port Fairy and Koroit could receive a lift as businesses consider the option of financial support to upgrade their frontages.
Another round of Moyne's Business Facade Improvement Program is now live with $5000 available to use to upgrade of frontages and facades.
Included in the 28 businesses who took advantage of the funding in round one were the old Koroit Milk Bar (now Deta Hair & Beauty), the Woolsthorpe General Store and Port Fairy businesses Bank St + Co. cafe, The Belfast and Bottega Toscana restaurants.
Other businesses across the shire who tapped into the funding included Mount Shadwell Hotel and Clarke's Cafe in Mortlake.
A requirement of the funding is that businesses contribute $5000 matching funding.
Businesses can contribute more to the project but the council allocation goes no higher than the $5000.
More than $90,000 was handed out by council in round one of the funding.
The work must improve the building and street face by doing more than just maintenance.
These works can include an upgrade of signage, repair of verandahs, new or upgraded lighting, some interior works and cleaning of existing facade.
Once funding is approved, works must be carried out within a six-month period, with council to inspect and approve works once completed.
The funding is available to businesses who are located broadly in the commercial area of the town.
Applications close September 13.
