Norfolk County has approved Mark Sloot for a project under Agricultural Buildings and Facilities Improvement Program of the Community Improvement Plan (CIP).
Mark Sloot will receive an interest-free loan of up to $15,000 and a grant of up to $5,213 for an addition to a farm market building to expand the market capacity. The addition will include a commercial kitchen area, septic system, refrigeration, and a barrier free entrance.
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.
