Andover Group Investments, LLC received an Andover Road Business Improvement Grant for the second year in a row. In 2018, the business received just over $2,300 to clean up an adjacent lot (remove trees, a shed, posts and fencing). In the future this lot will become parking for the expanding business at 1145 N Andover Road.
Janice Trammell, owner of The Plaza, was one of the 2018 Andover Road Business Improvement Grant winners. Ms. Trammell was awarded $5,000 to go towards painting the exterior of her business which looks GREAT! Council Member Troy Tabor is pictured here handing over the check to Ms. Trammell.
2019 Grant Cycle
In the 2019 budget, the Andover City Council once again included $15,000 to be awarded to the businesses on Andover Road. The goal of the Andover Road Business Improvement Grant Program is to support local businesses through funding for exterior building repairs or façade improvements, to replace legally non-conforming signs, to increase landscaping specifically in areas adjacent to sidewalks, to make ADA compliance improvements, or any improvements to the exterior of the business that makes the environment more pleasant for non-motorists.
