Norfolk County has approved J. Clapp Optometry Professional Corporation for a project under the Community Improvement Plan (CIP) Incentives.
J. Clapp Optometry will receive grant of up to $19,000 for a partial demolition and reconstruction of the former Port Dover library building located at 413 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.
