Downtowns to divvy up $59,527

Council will be asked to approve how to divvy up $59,527 received for revitalization projects in the County’s five main downtowns.

The funding was received from the Main Street Revitalization Initiative (funding provided by OMAFRA and administered by the Association of Municipalities of Ontario).

The funds must be spent by 2020 on priorities contained in action plans approved in 2018 for the County’s largest towns and villages – Picton, Bloomfield, Wellington, Consecon and Rossmore – such as facade improvements, signage or accessibility upgrades. The plans followed extensive public consultation through surveys with business owners, residents and visitors.

Emily Cowan, the County’s new Grants & Special Projects Co-ordinator, suggests each community be given access to
$10,000 toward implementing their action plans and Community Development will use
the remaining $9,527.43 toward implementation of the County-wide action plan – intended to represent the needs of other hamlets not represented in the study with the five downtowns.

Each community’s plan is included in the agenda for Tuesday night’s council meeting, at 7 p.m. in Shire Hall.
