Parklets and Pedlets Program
A part of the City of Kingman’s vision and goal is to have a successful downtown that serves as a hub for the arts, entertainment, tourism and other activities, the Parklet/Pedlet Program is one of many programs that was created to help achieve these goals.
Parklets/Pedlets offer benefits and change how people view and use public space. At a low capital cost, they create new mini-public plazas and mini-parks that attract people. Parklets/Pedlets emphasize the pedestrian experience by making streets beautiful, increase foot traffic, increase business sales and more people stop to socialize.
Beginning January 1, 2020, applicants within the Parklet/Pedlet Program boundary may apply to participate in the program.
Facade Improvement Program
The purpose of the Façade Improvement Program (FIP) is to improve the appearance of the Façade, the street-facing exteriors of commercial buildings in within the Downtown Kingman project boundary. The Program’s mission is to stimulate revitalization and private sector capital investment by proactively addressing deteriorating property conditions and encouraging improvements which increase economic vitality. For the 2019/2020 budget cycle, a total of $20,000 is budgeted for the FIP. Beginning January 1, 2020, an unlimited number of applicants may apply for matching funds to improve the street-facing exteriors of commercial buildings in Downtown Kingman until all FIP funds have been expended. Applications will be reviewed on a monthly basis.
