Salisbury – Mayor Jake Day is pleased to announce that the following local businesses have been selected to receive a grant from the City of Salisbury to assist with the cost of rehabilitation work to be performed on their commercial or residential buildings located in the Downtown Historic District: 


1) $20,000 – Devreco, LLC / 207 West Main St.

The City of Salisbury received the funding for these grants from the Community Legacy Program of the Maryland Department of Housing & Community Development (DHCD). These funds may be utilized for interior and/or exterior improvements to the structure. 


The Community Legacy Program is designed to aid in the revitalization of the Downtown area by fostering the growth of new businesses and assisting expanding businesses. Its objectives are to improve the physical appearance of both the interior and exterior of commercial and mixed-use buildings. Additionally, the program helps to preserve historical structures which are architecturally significant, and address any health and/or safety issues by eliminating code deficiencies.


“This year’s Community Legacy grant recipients represent a diverse cross section of the real estate Downtown,” said Mayor Day.  “Among the recipients you’ll find buildings where people gather to shop, learn, eat, live, perform, and work—all in the heart of our City.  To the recipients I offer my congratulations, and also my gratitude for their continued investment in Downtown Salisbury.  I look forward to seeing the beautification of Salisbury continued in the improvements these grants make possible.”
