Storefront Incentive Progam
The Economic Development Commission has introduced an incentive program for filling empty storefronts in downtown Woodstock. Applicants who are prepared to lease an existing empty storefront are eligible for financial incentives if they meet the following criteria:
The storefront is located in a parking meter zone
The storefront has been empty for more than 6 months
The space is on the ground floor or (if on the second floor) be clearly visible from the street
The business must be re-locating from outside the parking meter zone - moves from one downtown storefront to another do not qualify for the incentive
The business has signed a one-year (or longer) lease
Applicants who meet these criteria are eligible for financial support covering two months rent, paid in month 1 and month 7 of the first 12-month lease period.
The EDC will award grants to up to 3 grantees per calendar year.
