ROSCOMMON – The Bird and the Bear Bakery recently received a grant from the Roscommon Downtown Development Authority (DDA) for new signage and painting the exterior of the building at 205 North Fifth Street in the former AuSable Bakery location. The work was completed recently by A & M Painting of St. Helen and signage by Two Rare Designs of Roscommon.

They offer fresh-baked bread, cookies, pies, donuts and pastries; a grab-and-go-cooler is stocked with sandwiches, salads, pasta salads, dips and farmer’s creamery milk from Mio. There is also light breakfast and lunch menu. Hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The DDA partners with downtown property owners in order to enhance the downtown area. Matching funds are available for commercial façade improvements with a reimbursement of 50% up to $5,000 for an approved storefront renovation.

This year the DDA has budgeted $30,000 for the façade grant program. Applications are available at the Village of Roscommon offices or by visiting www.roscommonvillage.com.
