SIXTH STREET is beginning to showcase a uniform look.  A vintage green is taking over as the common building color. Matching signs feature a vintage look. New awnings resemble the main streets of yesteryear.
It’s all part of Texas City’s Sixth Street Revitalization project.
The goal is to present the area with 1950s charm, like pictured right, with vintage light posts, signage and the overall look.
James Hartshorn of the city’s economic development and media department said the Economic Development Corporation has offered several incentives to businesses as part of a project to develop the historic street into a regional entertainment destination.
The city will provide paint assistance to businesses by paying for paint that falls within the acceptable colors. The business is only responsible for the labor.
The new pre-1950s-style signage, below, is also on the citys dime, as they will work with businesses to design and install the new sign at no cost, provided the business stays in the building for five years.
The EDC will also pay 40 per cent of the total cost of purchasing the vintage-style awnings.
Additional incentives may also be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Many businesses on Sixth Street have already taken advantage of these offers and the historic street is steadily transforming.
The classic look will help preserve the rich history of Texas City, while hopefully drawing traffic and business to the area.
