Commercial Improvement Rebate Program
Long Beach Development Services

Zaferia is in a Designated Business Corridor so our members have access to the Commercial Improvement Rebate Program that provides rebates of up to $2,000 per business and commercial property owner to improve the exterior of their building. Exterior improvements such as painting, signage, exterior tile or brick veneer, window replacement and security lights, are some of the businesses favorite exterior improvements. Pre-approval is required for all proposed improvements.

The ZBA’s own Sav-On-Signs and Machan Sign Company are familiar with this program as it pertains to signage and will work with ZBA members.
