Catalyst Program success story

Post Date:04/03/2019 10:00 am

Buckeye’s Catalyst Program is designed to assist in the rehabilitation of existing commercial, industrial or mixed-use properties throughout the city. In the last four years, 27 businesses took advantage of this program.   ED-SnapFitness-Before-After-Vertical

The biggest Catalyst Program project to date is the relocation of Snap Fitness from a small strip mall on MC85 and Narramore Ave. to its new, larger, freestanding location at 9th Street and Monroe Ave.

Their new location is a 1930 historical building that was used for many years as a church.

“Buckeye’s Catalyst Program made this project possible,” said Lorenzo Suozzi, owner of Snap Fitness. “The building turned out to be more beautiful than we imagined and we are thankful the city assisted us with this very complex redevelopment project.”

The Catalyst Program offers up to $50,000 for existing Buckeye businesses seeking to expand, rehabilitate their building, beautify their streetscape or provide public amenities such as landscaping, public parking or lighting.

Reimbursement is provided to businesses after successfully completing the project and submitting the required documentation. Business owners must also financially contribute to the project. Full details are in the program guide and frequently asked questions.        

Interested business owners can download and review the detailed program guide and program application from the city of Buckeye’s Economic Development website, GrowBuckeye.com.
