Façade Grant Improvements
The Flat Rock Downtown Development Authority has approved two grant applications from business and property owners for façade improvements.
Applications for the grant funds have been received from the proposed Sugar Island Baking Co. at 28773 Telegraph Rd. and for improvements to a parcel at 27500 Telegraph Rd. that formerly housed a sign shop for many years. The baking company is from Gibraltar and will move in to a site located behind Fifth Third Bank.
Under the façade program, the DDA provides financial assistance to property or business owners wanting to renovate commercial buildings and structures within the DDA district. The assistance is in the form of grants or loans.

Due to the current State of Emergency in Flat Rock relating to the recent chemical spill, as well as the urgent need to focus community resources on the developing situation, we have made the decision to cancel this year’s Riverfest.
We are deeply disappointed to cancel the festival but it is the best decision for all involved. We would to thank all of our Sponsors, Vendors, Committee Members, and Volunteers for the hard work that went into planning. Thank you very much for your understanding and continued support of Riverfest. Stay tuned in coming months for information on 2022 events. Stay safe!
