Norfolk County has approved Lago Trattoria restaurant for a project under the Community Improvement Plan (CIP) Incentives.
Lago Trattoria will receive grants of up to $14,864 and an interest free loan of up to $7,500 for a new façade and interior upgrades to the building located at 301 Main Street in Port Dover. Façade improvements include new windows, new entrance and door, exterior painting, new exterior lighting, signage and planter boxes. Interior upgrades include ceiling repairs and fire rated drywall, replacement of non-conforming piping, addition of a fire damper, and the addition of a barrier free restroom.
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.
