The Uptown Community Improvement Plan aims to revitalize the Uptown Commercial District through the initiation of financial incentive grant programs that focus on maintenance, rehabilitation, development or redevelopment, addition of residential units, remuneration of municipal fees and attracting new investments and businesses to the area.
Leamington has developed a Community Improvement Plan (CIP) for its Uptown Commercial District. The process started in the Spring of 2011 and the finalized plan was completed in July 2012.
A CIP Information Pamphlet provides a quick overview of what the CIP can offer.
A CIP Boundary Map shows the properties that are eligible for the CIP Grants.
General information regarding the requirements for eligibility for any of the CIP grants is included in the CIP Grant Application.
Council has passed a by-law to permit the construction of sidewalk patios in the uptown area. An Application for Sidewalk Patio and Sidewalk Patio Guidelines form part of this by-law.
