The Downtown Kentville Facade Program

The Downtown Kentville Facade Program is a joint endeavour between KBC and the Town of Kentville with the goal of re-designing and upgrading downtown business facades to bring renewed vibrancy to the downtown and reflect the town’s brand project, “A Breath of Fresh Air”.

In May 2016, an RFP was sent out and KDCL determined that “Ekistics” – a Dartmouth design firm – would be handling all aspects of the delivery of the program.  The program will cost share 50% of the exterior facade improvements up to a maximum share of $5,000.  The Facade Program is also very specific to businesses within a proposed boundary in the downtown area.
