Norfolk County has approved Erie Beach Hotel Limited for a project under the Building Façade Improvement Program of the Community Improvement Plan (CIP).
A grant of up to $5,335 and an interest-free loan of up to $5,335 will be used to install stucco to the front façade and main entrance to the Cover Room and Terrace Room. These improvements will be consistent with the new stucco applied to the back of the building in 2015.
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.
