Schertz Main Street Area Preservation Incentive Program

In order to facilitate the preservation of historic structures to promote the economic vitality of the Main Street area as a tourist destination, the City of Schertz is offering incentives that will serve to improve existing properties and businesses within this area.

 

Matching funds up to $20,000 per property are available for the cost of renovations. The aim of the program is to protect, enhance, and preserve the historic resources and landmarks which represent distinctive element of the City of Schertz’ historic, architectural, economic, cultural, and social heritage by providing property owners an incentive for protecting their property; stabilize and improve property values; foster civic pride in the beauty and accomplishments of the past, and to promote the use of the historic structures for the culture, education, and general welfare of residents, and strengthen the economy of the city by protecting and enhancing the attractiveness of the Main Street area to residents and visitors, as well as provide support and stimulus to businesses.

About Us

We are a small group of 14 Schertz volunteers interested in preserving the historic remnants of our city’s rich past. The City’s heritage dates back to the mid-19th century and the arrival of the first European settlers to the Cibolo River Valley.

 

An exciting feature of our committee work involves planning and development of the resources for a City history-heritage museum.
