The Bryan City Council has expanded the Corridor Beautification Partnership to include the existing Texas Avenue corridor, as well as the South College Avenue corridor and a portion of the Villa Maria Road corridor within Midtown. These corridors act as gateways into Bryan and to our growing Downtown and Midtown areas; therefore these renovations can assist in making it even more economically vibrant and aesthetically appealing.

The CBP grant program works as a partnership between property owners and the City, using reimbursable matching funds to renovate and improve the visual impact of the properties on significant corridors in Bryan, Texas. After a project is approved, applicants may request up to 50% reimbursement for the approved work. Please note that all work must be approved PRIOR TO CONSTRUCTION. This grant is available to all retail and commercial businesses along the corridors, as well as multi-family property owners located on the approved corridors in Bryan. This program is not available to single-family residential property owners.

We encourage all applicants to set up a pre-application meeting with staff, prior to submitting an application. To set up your meeting, please contact Katie Williams, AICP, Project Planner at or call 979-209-5030.

The objectives of the program include:

  • Improve the community image and perception of the significant Bryan corridors through qualifying improvements focusing both on aesthetics and business vitality;
  • Encourage private investment in commercial businesses;
  • Eliminate blight along the significant Bryan corridors;
  • Stimulate redevelopment to increase sales tax revenues and property values; and
  • Stimulate economic and business development by providing safe environments for workers, businesses, and the public.

The types of improvements that are eligible include, but are not limited to:

  • Landscaping/Irrigation
  • Building Materials/Façade
  • Parking/Circulation/Access (excluding sealcoat)
  • Signage
  • Existing Land Use Requirements

What are some examples of encouraged improvements?

Some examples of eligible improvements include: Installing a buried irrigation system or drought resistant plants, updating non-compliant signage, resurfacing a deteriorating building façade, moving retail products out of the right of way, closing a portion of a large or unused driveway.

What types of properties are eligible?

Any business property located along the approved corridors this includes properties that have the zoning label of Office District (C-1), Retail District (C-2), or Commercial District (C-3), are encouraged to apply for the Corridor Beautification Partnership funds. Single-family residential properties are not eligible for the partnership.

I am a tenant, not a property owner. Can I still apply?

Yes! We encourage all tenants to discuss renovations with the property owner, and require the property owner’s signature on the application, however both property owners and tenants may apply.

How do matching funds work?

In this case grants are awarded on a matching reimbursement basis. The total cost of the enhancement project is split up to 50/50 between the grant recipient and the City of Bryan. The first step is to complete the application and specify the proposed improvements for which funding is requested. If the request is approved, then the matching grant monies will be disbursed at the completion of improvements, contingent on the acceptance of work by the City of Bryan.

What type of funding is included in the matching funds?

All construction materials can be included in the application for funds. Architectural fees and engineering estimate fees are not eligible.
