Beautification and anti graffiti accomplished at the same time!

In partnership with BC Hydro and the City of Langley, seventeen Hydro and traffic boxes were wrapped throughout the downtown. This is just another example of how by working together we can accomplish more than we ever could alone.

Get Fresh Program

The Downtown Langley Business Association launched their new “Get Fresh” Program in May 2012. This program was created to provide the Business Improvement Association businesses an opportunity to take advantage of matching grants that are specifically designed to improve the overall appearance of their businesses.


“This is an opportunity for businesses to make those positive changes that they may have been thinking about for a while”, says BIA Executive Director Teri James. “This is the first time we have had the resources to offer this and we are excited to see how our business community responds.”

Three grants are available:

  1. Exterior Painting Grant – The DLBA has contracted a professional painting company to provide a quote on the exterior painting of any store front business in the BIA, and the DLBA will match the total cost, dollar for dollar, to a maximum of $1,000.

  2. Awning and Signage Cleaning Grant – the DLBA has hired a professional awning/signage cleaning company that has already supplied the office with the cleaning cost for each awning and sign in our BIA, and the DLBA will pay for half the cost.

  3. Façade Improvement Grant –the DLBA will pay for half the cost of awning/signage replacement or re-skinning, canopies, windows, doors or a complete face-lift. This grant matches dollar for dollar to a maximum of $1,000.

For the Awning Cleaning Grant, a simple phone call to the office will get the ball rolling. The Exterior Painting and Façade Improvement grants require approval from the BIA Grant Review Committee prior to commencement of work.

Businesses are able to select one or all of the grant opportunities at full value, and letters of intent for façade improvement and exterior painting are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. 

“The best part of this program is that is sustainable,” says DLBA Chair Sonya Perkins, owner of Forever Yours Lingerie. “We are able to offer the “Get Fresh” Program year after year. It’s remarkable to watch all the new awnings and façade improvements taking place.”
