Community Improvement Plan

Community Improvement Plans (CIPs) are a sustainable community planning tool used by municipalities to revitalize areas of a city or community through programs, grants and incentives.

CIPs also:

  • address the reuse and restoration of lands, buildings and infrastructure
  • address growth management challenges
  • plan for rehabilitation, development and land-use change

The Township recognizes the value of community improvement planning initiatives and identifies opportunities for future work. Under the Planning Act, Community Improvement Plans (CIPs) can be undertaken for environmental, social or economic development reasons.

The Township of Hornepayne has prepared a Community Improvement Plan (CIP) for the Hornepayne Urban Settlement Area. The CIP establishes improvement strategies for public and private lands in the Community Improvement Area and enables the municipality to provide incentives to property owners to undertake improvements that meet the criteria established in the Plan, in accordance with Section 28 of the Planning Act. 

The CIP is prepared to leverage targeted public investment in the form of capital investments and to stimulate private investment in support of priorities. Priorities include:

  • Attracting more businesses;
  • Attracting more people to live in Hornepayne;
  • Creating a year-round tourist destination/Centre of Ontario;
  • Identifying opportunities for municipally owned properties;
  • Beautifying the urban Settlement Area;
  • Providing more amenities for residents;
  • Building safe pedestrian connections; and,
  • Marketing, branding and signage.
