Community Improvement Plan Update 2015

Community Improvement Plan (CIP)

The Downtown Community Improvement Plan (CIP) was adopted by Council in 2008. At that time, Council approved, by by-law, a defined 'Project Area' and 'Plan' which under the provisions of the Municipal and Planning Acts,  legally enable the Municipality to offer certain financial incentives as a mechanism to promote investment in a very important historical and commercial area of the Municipality , thereby generating economic development and increased assessment.

 2015 Update to the CIP -  Now Approved

Since 2008, additional study and policy work - such as the Waterfront Strategy and updated Municipal Official Plan - have been completed. This work highlights the potential opportunities within not only the original 'Project Area' of the downtown commercial core, but on the adjacent Waterfront and Special Policy Area lands to the east. In order to realize these opportunities, and address some of the challenges that exist both within the existing CIP area and on these adjacent lands, it is proposed that the 'Project Area' be extended, and that the 'Plan' be updated to include new programs such as the 'Environmental Study Grant' for Brownfields lands and the 'Upgrade to Building Code for Accessibility Loan' for building retrofits.

A Public Meeting was held on June 8th, 2015 to obtain comments on the proposed changes. The  amending by-laws (see below) were approved by Council on July 27th, 2015. A copy of the updated Community Improvement Plan (Consolidated original and amendments), the amending by-laws and notice of passing are provided below.
