Norfolk County has approved A. M. Jensen Limited for a project under the Structural Improvement Grant program of the Community Improvement Plan (CIP).
A.M. Jensen Limited will receive a grant up to $2,588 for the reconstruction of an insulated wall in a temperature-controlled storage cooler, allowing for an improved environment for the aging and storage of cheese products.
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.
