I am delighted to see that Athy has been allocated €100,000 in funding under the Streetscape Enhancement Initiative. Looking forward to seeing the positive impact this investment will have making Athy an even more colourful and vibrant town!
Under the Streetscape Enhancement Initiative, retailers and property owners will be provided with grants that they can use to improve the facades of their buildings, carry out artwork or install features such as street furniture or canopies.
The types of projects that could be supported include:
Strategic collaboration between property owners to paint buildings and/or shopfronts in vibrant colours
Upgrade or restoration of historic/traditional shopfronts
Provision of street planting, shrubbery, trees and flowers boxes
Installation of canopies
