Community Improvement Plan

Community Improvement Program

The Municipality of Grey Highlands Council approved the Municipality's first Community Improvement Plan (CIP) in March 2019 and designated the entire Municipality as a Community Improvement Area. 

A CIP is a planning and economic development tool that sets out a framework to assist in community revitalization and aims to achieve economic, community planning and urban development goals. CIPs provide many community benefits by:

  • Stimulating private sector investment in the community through grants and loans from the Municipality;
  • Promoting revitalization and place-making to attract tourism, business investment and economic development opportunities;
  • Developing affordable housing;
  • Promoting brownfield cleanup and redevelopment;
  • Enhancing streetscapes and building facades;
  • Encouraging the effective use of community infrastructure.

Applications are currently being accepted on an ongoing basis. Businesses and property owners considering participation in the CIP are encouraged to review the full program details linked below. All applicants are required to meet with Municipal staff for a pre-application meeting.
