Late last year, the city of Colleyville began to roll out its new program called Colleyville Business Enhancements to Support Transformation. This is a program to encourage economic development and help local business and property owners update their storefronts and improve the atmosphere and appearance of the city’s main business corridor.

In November, Assistant City Manager Mark Wood said the program will work with property owners to try to enhance businesses and properties along SH 26. He said as SH 26 is widened, the city wants to invest to improve the roadway and its visual appeal, including the businesses.

With this new program, businesses that apply could be eligible for grant money for new signs, exterior painting, landscaping, facade repairs and lighting.

Projects funded through BEST will have to meet requirements, such as significant frontage to SH 26.

For questions about the program and the application, businesses can contact Assistant City Manager Adrienne Lothery at 817-503-1112.
