Norfolk County has approved A.J.H. Truck Brokers Inc. for a project under the Residential Conversion and Rehabilitation Grant Programs of the Community Improvement Plan (CIP).
A.J.H. Truck Brokers Inc. will use a grant of up to $4,000 to convert an existing storage space into an apartment at the property located at 230 Main Street in Port Dover.
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.
