Retail Business Grant Program
The purpose of the Retail Business Grant Program is to foster a retail business friendly environment, to attract new retail businesses, and to assist existing retail businesses with expansion / investment activities.
One of the stated goals in the City of Chardon's Comprehensive Plan is to "Preserve and reinforce Chardon Square as the city's real and emotional "Center" and focus of the community's identity, including historic character, traditional seat of city and county government, viable "main street" businesses, and surrounding housing." The goal of the Retail Business Grant Program is to strengthen the retail mix in Uptown Chardon via variety and complementary stores.
