Downtown Property Enhancement Program

On April 1, 2015 the Economic Development Division launched the Downtown Property Enhancement Program (DPEP), which aimed to encourage economic growth and business activity by assisting downtown businesses and building owners to improve the visual appearance and condition of their storefronts and the accessibility of their building exteriors and ground floors. The program awarded matching grants of $2,500 - $30,000 for eligible improvements in targeted areas of the City. The City paid up to 50% of the costs for eligible work up to the maximum of $30,000. Four applicants utilized this program and executed improvement Grant Agreements by July 31, 2016.

S3 - UC Berkeley Haas Study Final Report - Revitalizing Downtown

In January 2015, the Economic Development Division entered into an agreement with the Center for Nonprofit and Public Leadership at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley to create an action strategy for downtown revitalization, focused on economic and post-earthquake renewal. The project scope was to recommend strategies that could be implementable within 3 to 5 years and strategies that can be led by the Economic Development Division or partner organizations. The recommended strategies should not be contingent on new construction or changes in economic conditions, or require significant funding unless an outside source was identified.
