Halton Hills Community Improvement Plan
The Town of Halton Hills Community Improvement Plan provides financial incentives to encourage private sector investment and revitalization within particular areas of the Town.
The CIP contains grant programs to help improve the appearance and the condition of commercial buildings, encourage the conversion of upper floor space for residential use, assist with the cost of preparing necessary plans and studies and encourage the environmental clean-up and redevelopment of older abandoned industrial and commercial sites that may be contaminated.
A loan program is also available to be used for interior and exterior building maintenance and improvement.
In addition to grants and loans, the CIP includes other programs that require Council approval which include all of the tax assistance programs and the brownfield parkland dedication reduction program.
For a list of the programs available in each area, view this chart. A map of the sub areas is available here.
On April 12, 2010, Halton Hills Council approved the Town of Halton Hills Comprehensive Community Improvement Plan (CIP). The Town of Halton Hills Comprehensive CIP identifies the entirety of the Town of Halton Hills as a Community Improvement Project Area and outlines incentive programs and municipal leadership strategies for the following eight sub-areas:
- Guelph Street (the Georgetown Community Node located along Guelph Street, generally between Maple Avenue and Sinclair Avenue);
- Downtown Georgetown;
- Downtown Acton;
- The Georgetown GO Station Lands,
- The South Acton Special Study Area (the former Beardmore Tannery lands) and other Brownfield sites;
- Agricultural/Rural Lands;
- Georgetown Industrial Park; and,
- Acton Industrial Park.
On July 11, 2016, Council approved an Amendment to the Community Improvement Plan to provide more flexibility regarding the Brownfield Parkland Dedication Program, and to expand the Brownfield Parkland Dedication Program into more areas in the Town of Halton Hills.
In November 2017, the Town’s Community Improvement Plan (CIP) was amended a second time to consider eligibility of some Community Improvement programs to properties outside of delineated areas. Eligibility is assessed on a case by case basis through the application of criteria.
