PAINT CRESTON PROGRAM AVAILABLE IN 2019

The Image Enhancement Committee of the Creston Chamber of Commerce is again offering paint and painting supplies through the Paint Creston Program to a minimum of seven Creston owner occupied homes in 2019. In the nine years that the program has been in place, 45 homes in Creston have been painted.

In the past, some homeowners have been hesitant to participate for fear of increasing their home's assessed value. According to former Union County Assessor’s, "The assessment on a home will not raise if the home is painted or re-roofed contrary to popular belief.”

In order to be considered for the program, the home needs to be owner occupied, in the city limits of Creston and the home owner must have the ability to get the home painted by October 11, 2019.  In the past the painting has been done or helped by the home owner, family and friends of the homeowner or organizations that the home owner is involved with.

Each interested homeowner needs to complete an application which is available at the Chamber Office or online - PLEASE SEE BELOW.    The completed application must be returned no later than 5:00 p.m. on May 2, 2019, to the Chamber Office, 208 West Taylor Street, Creston, IA.  The mailing address is PO Box 471, Creston, IA, 50801 and the Chamber email address is chamber@crestoniowachamber.com.  Each application will be reviewed and the home owners will be contacted May 17th if their home will receive paint and supplies.

For questions please contact the Chamber Office at 641-782-7021 or email them.

This is a great inexpensive way to get rid of unwanted appliances and other household items. Please do not miss this opportunity.
