Norfolk County has approved the first project under its new Community Improvement Plan (CIP) incentives. Delhi Belgian Archery Club was approved for a project under the Structural Improvement Grant. The Delhi Belgian Archery Club will receive a grant up to $3,794 to construct a handicapped accessible door to the lower level of the Delhi Belgian Club.
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.
