Maple Street Beautification Grant

With help from a Carrollton Maple Street Corridor Beautification Grant, White Oak Pediatric Dentistry recently completed a renovation of their building at 709 Maple Street.

“The grant helped us go the extra mile with the aesthetics of our building by providing financial help with paint and windows,” said Dr. Ben Popple. “This also allowed us to allocate funds toward other areas of the building like landscaping, parking lot repairs and other small projects. The city really worked with us to make sure the process went smoothly.”

In December, 2019, the Carrollton Corridor Development and Beautification Grant Sub-Committee voted to approve the $10,000 grant for exterior paint and storefront windows at Popple’s building. The Maple Street Corridor Beautification Program looks to stimulate development and improve the visual image of properties within the Maple Street corridor. Applicants must match the funding, 50/50.

Popple said he had been looking for an opportunity to open an office in Carrollton for three years. The beautification grant and the city’s focus on corridor development helped him make the final decision to open White Oak here.

“The grant makes it easier for business owners to make positive changes to their businesses sooner than they might be able to otherwise.” said Popple. “Maple Street is an important connector between two of Carrollton’s strongest areas, the University and downtown. The grant definitely attracted us to Maple Street and helped us see past some of the issues our building had knowing we could use the grant to help correct them.”
