The Municipality of Kincardine is creating a new Community Improvement Plan (CIP) to attract investment and foster economic growth.

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. 


  • 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;
  • Develop affordable housing;
  • Enhance streetscapes and building facades;
  • Encourage the effective use of community infrastructure.

The CIP may also include goals we develop because of what we hear during the community engagement process.

Community Engagement
