Norfolk County has approved 762830 Ontario Inc. (Accents) for the Building Façade Improvement Program under the Community Improvement Plan (CIP).
The tenant, with the permission of the property owner, will receive an interest free loan of up to $581.25 and a grant of up to $581.25 for the installation of an awning on the building located at 10 Norfolk Street South in Simcoe.
Incentives are available for architectural and design, environmental site assessment, structural improvements, building facades, agricultural building and facilities, residential conversions and rehabilitation, landscaping, signage and property improvement. Property tax increment grants are also available for larger projects.
Non-residential projects are eligible for incentives. Depending on the program, programs apply to properties in urban, hamlet, lakeshore and agricultural areas.
Community Improvement Plans help municipalities target areas in transition or in need of repair, rehabilitation and redevelopment, and stimulate private sector investment through municipal incentive-based programs.
