Please be advised that the Council of the Municipality of Dutton Dunwich will be holding a statutory Public Meeting pursuant to Section 28 of the Planning Act on July 24th, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. in Council Chambers.
The purpose of the meeting is for the Council to hear comments on the proposed amendments to the Elgincentives Community Improvement Plan for the Municipality of Dutton Dunwich.
Purpose and Effect
The existing Elgincentives Community Improvement Plan for the Municipality of Dutton Dunwich was adopted in 2015 and provides a framework for encouraging the rehabilitation and improvement of private lands and buildings in key locations throughout the Municipality of Dutton Dunwich. The Community Improvement Plan provides policies that enable Council to offer financial incentives to private property owners, which currently apply to commercial, mixed-use, and tourism-related land uses. These incentives are intended to encourage property owners to improve the appearance of their lands and buildings, which ultimately benefit the residents and visitors within the Municipality of Dutton Dunwich.
The proposed amendment to the Community improvement Plan would permit employment and industrial land uses as land uses eligible for the financial incentives programs. In addition, financial programs have also been proposed for the rehabilitation and redevelopment of brownfield sites (contaminated lands requiring remediation prior to development). The amendment applies to the existing Community Improvement Project Area (as designated by By-law#2015-39).
