Work Begins To Improve Downtown Mason City Facades


By Richard Pratt

MASON CITY, Iowa -- Ten businesses in downtown Mason City will be getting facade improvements.

The Mason City Globe Gazette says the work began this week.

The project evolved from a $500,000 grant administered by the city of Mason City. The businesses were required to put up a 10 percent match.

The facades are getting a new, historic look with realistic elements employed to avoid a contrived appearance.
