The Community Improvement Plan (CIP)

A CIP is a planning and economic development framework that includes public realm improvement projects and financial incentive programs designed to stimulate private sector investment and building rehabilitation and development. CIPs can assist residents, business owners, and investors to plan for the revitalization, redevelopment and stabilization of their neighbourhoods. A CIP also enables the Township to provide financial incentives to private landowners for improvements to lands, buildings, signs, landscaping and other works.

CIP - 5 Year Review

The CIP was adopted in 2012 and is now undergoing a 5 year review. As part of this review, Luciano Piccioni, President of RCI Consulting, will be:

  • Reviewing the results of the existing incentive programs to determine uptake, effectiveness and any needed refinements;
  • Determining if any critical needs are not being met by the existing programs;
  • Identifying gaps or issues with regard to existing program content and administration;
  • Reviewing the existing Community Improvement Project Area (CIPA) and areas outside of the current CIPA; and
  • Proposing incentive program revisions and additions and a revised CIPA as needed to address critical needs and gaps.

An Open House was held on October 5th to present the proposed changes to the existing CIP to members of the public and business owners.
