Community Improvement Plan Adopted by CKL

You may recall that earlier this spring, a proposal for the Community Improvement Plan (CIP) was circulated and discussed. This plan has now officially been adopted by the City of Kawartha Lakes.

To refresh your memory on what this is all about: $1,000,000 has been allocated by the City of Kawartha Lakes as part of The Community Improvement Plan (CIP). The purpose of these funds is to provide a variety of financial incentive programs to business and property owners in order to encourage and support economic growth and innovation in the area.

Some pending possible uses for the funding include:

  • Planning and building permits
  • Signage improvement
  • Facade improvement
  • Marina slips
  • Outdoor patios
  • Heritage conservation
  • Loan options

If you've got a plan to beautify your property in Fenelon Falls, this could be the perfect fit for you. Watch this space of the trusty Town Crier for more details about the CIP and the application process as they become available!
