 Revitalizing historic downtown Newhall one building at a time, the city of Santa Clarita hosted one more ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday to celebrate the façade improvements of 11 store fronts.

Five property owners received grants of $55,000 each when the city of Santa Clarita secured $303,635 through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009.

The money helped property owners — The Holzman Family Trust, Adriana and David Gammert, Jusgo Investments, LLC, Harry and Mabel Mayelian, and SBB&K Properties — make façade upgrades to their properties and meet city and federal requirements.

The city also invested in preserving historical elements of the Old Town Newhall business district by improving Main Street itself — adding landscaping, outdoor benches and street lighting to create a pedestrian-friendly area.

Lastly, sitting at the entrance of the historic shopping district, the city opened its new 30,000 square foot library on Main Street and Lyons Avenue in September.
