Norfolk County has approved The Coop and Hen restaurant on Hwy 3 east of Delhi for a project under the Structural Improvement Grant of the Norfolk County Community Improvement Plan (CIP).
A grant up to $1,691 will be used for upgrading the kitchen fire suppression system, to be completed by a certified technician in compliance with National Fire Protection Association standards.
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.
