Important Kawartha Lakes July Planning Open Houses

New Kawartha Lakes Financial Incentives Being Announced!

Kawartha Lakes Mums - Do you live in Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Lindsay, Omemee, or Woodville?  City of Kawartha Lakes is giving residents of Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Lindsay, Omemee, and Woodville an opportunity to review the first full version of its plans for growth and development in each community, and provide input on a new program of financial incentives.

Following extensive consultation, research, and analysis completed through 2012, the municipality will be sharing details of the plans to guide each community’s growth and development over the next 20 years. All interested citizens are encouraged to attend the Open House in their community or visit the municipality’s website to obtain the Secondary Plans.

The municipality is also concurrently conducting public consultation for new Community Improvement Plans aka CIPs. Upon completion, the CIPs will make financial incentives available to downtown / main street properties in Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Lindsay, Omemee, and Woodville to encourage renovation, rehabilitation, and redevelopment.
'The linkage between the Secondary Plans and the Community Improvement Plans is very important,'says Michael Benner, the municipality’s Manager of Policy Planning. 'The Secondary Plans provide long-term direction and the CIPs will help stimulate positive change in the short-term.'
'The target audience for the CIPs is downtown / main street business and property owners,' indicates Denise Williams, the City’s Business Retention and Expansion Officer. 'There are many financial incentives that we can offer and we need their input so that we can tailor the financial incentives to their needs.'
The Secondary Plan Open Houses and consultation on the Community Improvement Plans will consist of display materials, an informal presentation, and a question-and-answer session.
