Immokalee's Chez Nuos Dadou restaurant latest to benefit from redevelopment
Immokalee's Chez Nuos Dadou is the latest restaurant to get a facelift, part of an on-going redevelopment effort in the community's quest to become a shining example of "Florida in the 21st Century."
The Haitian and French eatery, 211 West Main Street, won approval earlier this week from the Collier County Commission for a $16,000 facade improvement grant from the Immokalee Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA).
The CRA's facade grant program gives businesses up to $20,000 for an exterior face-lift, provided the business matches the grant on a 1/2-to-1 basis.
The project is one more piece of the revitalization effort currently underway in Immokalee. In addition to a massive stomwater and drainage project in South Immokalee, a variety of businesses and institutions are taking advantage of economic and business incentives to grow and expand.
Other improvement projects currently underway or beginning soon include Dr. Francois's Haitian Grocery, the old Santos Corner in South Immokalee, Goodwill Industries on Main Street and a new headquarters for the Immokalee Foundation on Roberts Avenue.
