In 2016 Bluewater Council approved the development of a Community Improvement Plan (CIP) for the three villages and the six hamlets within the Municipality of Bluewater.
After an in depth community outreach program, Council and staff are pleased to announce that the CIP is complete and we are now accepting applications for the:
Commercial Facade Improvement Grant Program; and the Heritage Property Improvement Grant
Grants will be awarded for 50% of improvement costs up to a maximum of $5000.00 for applicants who reside within one of the designated Community Improvement Project Areas, which include the downtown areas of Blake, Brucefield, Dashwood, Hensall, Kippen, St. Joseph, Varna, Zurich, and the downtown and marina areas of Bayfield.
Before completing an application form, applicants should read the Municipality of Bluewater Community Improvement Plan. Information on each grant program is found in Section 6.0 and General Eligibility Requirements are in Section 7.1.1.
