The New Business and Commercial Revitalization Program assists and encourages small business development in the city. The new business phase of the program is to assist in start-up businesses. The commercial revitalization efforts are available for 1) remodeling, 2) building renovation, 3) leasehold improvements of existing businesses.
The Northwood Design Committee was developed to help Northwood's downtown building owners create an appealing business and shopping district. We believe an attractive image in downtown Northwood will create an economically healthy commercial district. The committee is working closely with the Historical Preservation Commission to educate building owners about the importance of preserving the historic nature of Northwood's many architecturally significant buildings.
Total United Northwood Effort promotes and assists with community development by supporting the community effort to revitalize Northwood. TUNE is working to re-establish the downtown as the center of the community and to establish a tax-deductible foundation for donations targeted for specific, local projects and programs. For more information, visit the TUNE website at www.northwoodtune.org.
The City of Northwood is fortunate to have numerous architecturally suitable buildings that speak to the era of the town's founding. It is the Historical Preservation Commission's goal to preserve the facades of these buildings. This is achieved by applying for grants and gaining public interest and support.
