Norfolk County has approved Jerusa and Jesse Hunter for a project under the Community Improvement Plan (CIP).
Jerusa and Jesse Hunter will receive a grant of up to $9,500 towards the establishment of Child’s Play, an indoor playground which will be located at 150 West Street in Simcoe. The grant will be provided for architectural and design drawings, building permit fees, and structural improvements including electrical and plumbing components in the unit.
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.
