Thomas Mayo Associates / Architects & Urban Designers were retained by the Town of Webster, Massachusetts to provide architectural and graphic design services under the Webster Facade Improvement Pro­gram.  The Facade Improvement Program was funded under a Federal assistance grant and designed by the Webster Office of Community Development to encour­age renovation and upgrading of store­fronts and building facades within the Main Street target area to, not only im­prove the appear­ance and enhance the image of the downtown, but also to act as a catalyst to private investment in the revitalization of the downtown area.


TMA provided architectural services on a wide vari­ety of projects under this program ranging from an individual sign to a com­plete build­ing facade restoration.  TMA's ser­vices included meetings with indi­vid­ual store and/or building owners to dis­cuss work scope, budget, and to review design ideas, preparation of conceptual design studies and cost estimates, final designs, con­struction draw­ings and specifications, and construc­tion coordination.  As an early action, TMA assisted in the preparation of a Design Guidelines booklet for the Facade Improvement Program.
