The CIP is Coming!

If you are a local business or commercial building owner, you probably remember hearing all about the CIP last spring. The City of Kawartha Lakes CIP - which stands for Community Improvement Plan - includes funding in order to encourage the maintenance, rehabilitation, and redevelopment of buildings in our area.

The four main objectives of the CIP are:

1. To address building repairs and improve functionality

2. Heritage buildings and heritage district restoration and improvement

3. Housing rental retrofits for multi-use buildings

4. Downtown revitalization and enhancements

Full details of the CIP are expected to be released in November, including the application process information, loan and grant amounts, and the criteria for projects to apply. Keep an eye on this space in the Town Crier for updates on this exciting opportunity for business and commercial land owners in Fenelon.

Start thinking of your desired building improvements now and we will keep you posted on all the details for applying for funding through the CIP!
