Community Improvement Plan (CIP)

Community Improvement Plan (CIP) and Designated CIP Areas

It has been determined that it is in the best interest of the Town to encourage the conservation, rehabilitation, and redevelopment of the identified Community Improvement Project Areas. Three Community Improvement Project areas have been identified including the Downtown Core, the Former Carnation Site, and the Fairgrounds/Old Arena Site in which programs of conservation, rehabilitation, or transformation may be carried out in accordance with the Planning Act. Each of these Project Areas contains properties that have been subject to a number of forces such as disaster, transition, neglect, under-utilization or land use conflict and exhibit the potential to enhance or revitalize the area through beautification, development, redevelopment, intensification, and the provision of downtown housing.

A Community Improvement Plan (CIP) is a powerful tool which allows funds and implement policy initiatives toward a specifically defined project area or areas. The intent of the CIP is to encourage the rehabilitation of lands and buildings and/or the stimulation of development. Once implemented, the CIP will allow Council to provide grants to assist in the rehabilitation of lands and/or buildings within a defined project area or areas in compliance with the goals and objectives of the Official Plan and Provincial Policy Statement.

Community Improvement as defined by the Planning Act means the "planning or replanning, design or redesign, resubdivision, clearance, development or redevelopment, construction, reconstruction and rehabilitation, improvement of energy efficiency, or any of them, of a community improvement project area, and the provision of such residential, commercial, industrial, public, recreational, institutional, religious, charitable or other uses, buildings, works, improvements or facilities, or spaces therefore, as may be appropriate or necessary.

On June 18, 2012, the Town of Aylmer Council designated three areas as Community Improvement Plan (CIP) Areas and adopted the Aylmer Community Improvement Plan (CIP). Refer to:
