City of Gillette Landscape Incentive Grant Program

Awards: 

  • The City will match up to 50% of the total cost of a commercial landscape project with the maximum grant amount being $5,000. 
  • Funds are paid out on prorated basis. 50% of the grant amount will be paid upon completion of the project. After one year, an additional 25% will be paid and after two years the final 25% will be paid.

Criteria:

  • The Parks & Beautification Board will select which projects to award grants to. Priority will be given to locations with high traffic & visibility. 
  • Projects with a total cost of less than $2,000 are not eligible. 
  • Applicants must submit their plans to City staff to ensure they meet zoning ordinances and landscape standards. 
  • The property owner will be responsible for maintenance of the landscape area. 
  • Funds are for new projects or rehabilitation projects. 
  • The grant is non-transferable. Should the property be sold, the remaining payments will not be paid out.

Eligibility:

  • Any property owner of an existing commercial, industrial, or multi-family residence within the City limits of Gillette may apply for a Landscape Incentive Grant. 
  • Tenants of eligible properties may apply, but must attach written permission of the property owner with a statement acknowledging that the property owner is ultimately responsible for maintenance of the landscaped area.

Application Process:

  • The application form, with plans or sketches, must be submitted to the Parks Superintendent or the Administrative Assistant at City West. 
  • The Parks & Beautification Board will review the application to determine approval or denial of the grant. 
  • If the grant is awarded, an Agreement will be prepared and executed prior to the start of the project. 
  • Upon completion of the project, invoices and other proof of payment documentation will be submitted to the Parks Superintendent for approval. 
  • Staff will inspect the project and upon acceptance, the first payment will be issued. 
  • After one year, City staff will re-inspect the project. Landscaping must be properly maintained and plant material must be healthy. The Parks Superintendent will then issue the second payment of 25%. 
  • After two years, City staff will conduct a final inspection. If all is acceptable, the final payment will be issued.
