Design Assistance

Are you planning a building improvement project? As a property  owner in the Main Street district, you have access to the services of a  Main Street Iowa architect at no cost to you. These services can include design assistance with façade improvements, floor plans and more.

A design consultation with a Main Street Iowa architect can lower  overall project costs, illustrate what your ideas will look like when  completed, solicit advice from a design professional with experience  working on old buildings, initiate the process of applying for Historic  Preservation Tax Credits, or strengthen your application for a Main  Street Iowa Challenge Grant.

The process is simple: 1) fill out the enclosed form and return it to my office, 2) meet with the architect at your building to discuss the  potential improvements—the meeting lasts an hour or less, 3) receive the architect’s rendering in the mail usually within a month of the  meeting, and 4) take the architect’s rendering to a contractor to show  the contractor exactly what work you would like to do.

After the consultation, you are under no obligation to complete the  project. If your plans or budget change, you can arrange for another  consultation. The consultations are strictly confidential.

Please download and complete the form below and return it to the Newton Main Street  office at 113 1st Ave W; Newton, IA 50208.
