A grant of up to $7,500 and an interest-free loan of up to $7,500 will be used to improve the building located at 86 King Street in Delhi. Renovations will include new siding, window caps, fascia, soffits, eaves troughs, and painting.
Norfolk County has also approved Andy’s Drive-In for a project under the Landscaping, Signage and Property Improvement Program of the CIP. Michele Docker will receive a grant of up to $750 to remove and replace the existing deteriorating concrete pad at the order counter.
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.
