The Municipality of North Grenville implemented a Community Improvement Program (CIP) in 2014 within the Rideau-Sanders Triangle. The CIP offers a suite of financial incentive programs to stimulate the revitalization of properties within a designated area.

The Old Town Kemptville BIA has asked the Municipality for consideration to expand the program into Old Town Kemptville. A public meeting will present the current program, the expansion proposal and provide Friends of Downtown with the opportunity to ask questions and provide input in preparation for Municipal Council 2017 budget deliberations.

Tuesday, November 15, 2016 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at the North Grenville Public Library’s Norenberg Building Tallman Room.

The Old Town Kemptville BIA ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING will be held November 23, 2016 at 6:30pm. Two locations are currently being considered – The North Grenville Curling Club on Reuben and Geronimo Coffee House on Prescott. Stay tuned for the official announcement in the NG Times and on social media.
