A Community Improvement Plan (CIP) is a planning and economic development tool that establishes a framework for future municipal projects. It encourages private sector investment within key areas of the Township.
The Township and the County retained RCI Consulting to conduct a comprehensive review and update of their respective CIPs to help ensure that these CIPs are better aligned and more responsive to current and future community improvement needs in Centre Wellington and the County of Wellington.
The goals and objectives of the Township’s updated CIP are to address:
- Façade and Building Improvement
- Efficient and Strategic Use of Land
- Housing Supply
- Economic Growth and Diversification
- Agricultural and Agri-Business Uses
- Design and Environmental Sustainability
The CIP Grant Program is designed to focus on improvement projects that go above and beyond regular maintenance and repair to a property. Repairs and maintenance relate directly to wear and tear or damage or maintenance of property whereas an improvement makes something better than it was originally or provides something in a new and more valuable form.
The CIP Grant Program is administered by the Township’s Economic Development Office.
The Community Improvement Plan (CIP) with maps is now available. A Notice of Adoption was posted on December 7, 2023. A twenty (20) day appeal period passed. A CIP Implementation Report will be presented to Council in 2024 outlining the administrative details surrounding the CIP, including the budget and incentives to be offered in 2024.
