What is a Community Improvement Plan (CIP) and how is it created by Council?

In September 2019, Council approved that staff undertake a Community Revitalization Planning Study and Community Improvement Plan. Both projects involve public consultation and input.

A CIP is short for Community Improvement Plan and it is created under the rules of the Planning Act of Ontario.

It is based on background research about what could, or needs to be, physically improved in the community.

CIP’s list public municipal infrastructure, like sewers, roads, sidewalks, parks and facilities that would be improved.

CIP’s list Community financial incentive programs that would be available for private property improvements

To create the CIP, Council passes two by-laws - one to identify where in the community the CIP would apply, and a second to adopt the CIP.

Like all by-laws, those for a CIP are subject to formal public involvement and discussion steps in order to gain valuable community input prior to being adopted as a by-law. Active public engagement is the key tool for your community input.

The CIP will form one part of the Manitouwadge Community Improvement Study.

In Manitouwadge, the CIP area is focusing on the entrance to Town (high school) on Manitou Rd. through to the downtown core, including Prospector Park and Agawa Gardens, up to Sante Manitouwadge Health. To view the map, please view the attachment to the right of this page.
