Facade Improvement Construction

Due Date: January 1, 1970

Project Overview Community Action Commission, now doing business as Tri County Community Action (TCCA), is requesting proposals from qualified contractors to complete construction on three building façade improvements. TCCA was incorporated in Harrisburg, PA on April 12, 1966 as a private, nonprofit, anti-poverty planning agency serving Cumberland, Dauphin, and Perry Counties.  TCCA works with families and communities to provide comprehensive services to creatively maximize the resources necessary to become self-sufficient.  TCCA utilizes a results oriented approach to promote self-sufficiency, family stability, and community revitalization to eradicate poverty at its root; through empowerment and helping people help themselves. As part of TCCA’s Neighborhood Revitalization program, the target area of Derry Street between 13th and 17th streets has been selected to begin commercial façade improvements in the South Allison Hill neighborhood. This section of Derry Street has been a historical commercial corridor since the late 1800s and still has most of its original brick buildings and storefronts. Over a century of history has seen facades adapted and changed due to window replacement, lack of maintenance and other issues. Businesses in the area are gaining customers and the restoration of this historic corridor could be a catalyst to broader economic development in the community. To protect the community’s historical character, the South Allison Hill Business Façade Grant Program through TCCA will provide an opportunity for commercial/retail property owners and business owners to repair and restore their facades to improve the overall quality of the buildings and the retail corridor. Proposed Project Schedule This project will complete construction of three property façade improvements in 2016.
