Community Improvement Plan & Incentive Programs

The Municipality approved a Downtown Community Improvement Plan for the downtown area of the former Town of Meaford in 2008. This Plan was updated in 2015 to expand the Project Area and incentive programs offered. Information about the update, and a consolidated copy of the Downtown Community Improvement Plan , can be found HERE.  

In 2017 Council approved a NEW Economic Community Improvement Plan applying to commercial, industrial, agricultural/value-added and non-residential heritage lands/buildings outside of the Downtown CIP Area. This plan also includes a new Energy Efficiency and Retrofit Grant for which Downtown (non-residential) landowners are also eligible. Click on the applicable link for a copy of the Economic CIP Background Study and approved Plan.
