What is a Community Improvement Plan?

A Community Improvement Plan (CIP) is a strategic document that highlights community needs and priorities while outlining supporting programs and financial incentives to facilitate change. The CIP defines a Community Improvement Plan Area (CIPA) within the municipality. 

The new CIP will align with the County’s recently enhanced Spruce the Bruce program and may look at supports for housing and business park development. 


  • Stimulate private sector investment in the community through grants and loans from the Municipality/County;
  • Promote revitalization and place-making to attract tourism, business investment and economic development opportunities;
  • Attract the development of more affordable housing;
  • Enhance streetscapes and building facades;
  • Encourage the effective use of community infrastructure.

The CIP may also include additional programs that are identified during the community engagement process.
