Commercial Landscaping Grant Program

The Pasco Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) approved funding for the Commercial Redevelopment Landscaping Grant Program as part of its strategy to “fund incentives to promote urban design, and visual, landscaping and aesthetic property improvements for identified (and) targeted redevelopment areas for beautification and property enhancement in commercial districts”.

The positive environment created by aesthetically-pleasing landscaping not only welcomes customers inside local businesses, but also enhances their perception of the level of quality of products and services offered by that business and ultimately increases property values.  The Office of Economic Growth has dedicated staff available for hands-on application and program assistance.
