CIP ap­proved

The Glengarry News - - News -

South Glen­garry is mov­ing ahead with the in­tro­duc­tion of a Com­mu­nity Im­prove­ment Plan which is de­signed to spruce up prop­er­ties through­out the mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

Town­ship coun­cil has ap­proved a by­law to im­ple­ment the CIP “to en­cour­age the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and im­prove­ment of pri­vate lands and build­ings” in the town­ship.

Like the one adopted in North Glen­garry, the CIP pro­vides el­i­gi­ble prop­erty own­ers fi­nan­cial in­cen­tives to im­prove the ap­pear­ance of their lands and build­ings in ac­cor­dance with guide­lines adopted by the mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

The CIP will be put in place if no ob­jec­tions are filed by the Septem­ber 25 dead­line to reg­is­ter an ap­peal.

Main streets

The first phase of the CIP, to be car­ried out from 2018 to 2020, would tar­get designated ar­eas in Lan­caster, South Lan­caster, Wil­liamstown, Mart­in­town and Green Val­ley and com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial struc­tures fronting on the main streets.

In Phase 2, from 2020 to 2022, build­ings in Glen Wal­ter, North Lan­caster, Bainsville and Glen Nor­man would be up­graded.

The third phase, from 2022 to 2024, would en­tail pub­lic art and in­ter­nal up­grades.
