Community Improvement Plan (CIP)

What is a CIP?

A Community Improvement Plan (CIP) is a municipal planning and financial tool, legislated under the Ontario Planning Act, that sets out programs and strategies for improving the built, economic, and social environment in designated areas of the municipality. 

Through the completion of planning initiatives, strategies, and several community consultations an "action" list has been identified by the community with respect to improving the physical, social and business environment, including: 
  • Stimulate business development
  • Revitalize and beautify the villages and waterfront
  • Encourage consistency in facades
  • Promote infill, intensification and adaptive reuse
  • Provide for a range of housing types 
  • Enhance the quality of life in South Glengarry
