Public Square Historical District Facade Easement Program
The Public Square National Register Historic District has many building facades that are unique, attractive and eligible for certification as "contributing to the District". These contributing building facades are deemed a public asset in the City of Watertown and are therefore eligible to be included in a Facade Easement program as established under the laws of the State of New York.
Neighbors of Watertown, Inc. manages these fine apartments, many of which are beautiful historic properties it has redeveloped, to provide safe, decent, affordable housing as well as quality, accessible, affordable commercial opportunities to our community.
In many types of development, both residential and commercial, large projects and small Neighbors has been very successful in utilizing a variety of funding sources to make projects feasible. This experience is available to others on a consultant basis or through joint venture techniques.
