Spring is in the Air!  Upgrade your curb appeal with this opportunity.






Downtown Curb Appeal Project

The storefront to your business is one of your most valuable marketing tools. It is also one that is often overlooked. This is the first impression and first opportunity to introduce your business to customers. Studies also show that it impacts whether someone returns to your business. As the saying goes, “you only get one chance to make a good first impression”.

The Greater Ukiah Business and Tourism Alliance (GUBTA) along with the Ukiah Main Street Program wants to help you put your best foot forward. We want to help you improve your curb appeal!

Local architects, Steven and Kali of Ren/Alexander Design (see information below) have volunteered their time and services to provide a professional consultation with recommendations for improvements that can be made.

They will provide the following:

½ hour consultation appointment at your business location

Three recommendations and budgets for improvements:
$250 – paint suggestions, plants, or other basic DIY ideas
$500 – a more significant list of recommendations designed to for someone interested in investing more into their project
$1000+ - GO BIG! These recommendations are for the business that can invest in more significant improvements that will further upgrade their curb appeal and character of our historic downtown.

What are the steps?
Submit the attached form to: by April 1.

The architects will contact you to schedule a consultation. These will be scheduled for April 9-10.
