There’s always room for improvement. The town will explore the use of community improvement plans to help its growth areas evolve in accordance with the Livable Oakville Plan.
The Livable Oakville Plan enables the creation of Community Improvement Plans, in accordance with the Planning Act, and sets criteria for the designation of community improvement areas. Staff will report on how community improvement plans might be used to encourage redevelopment and stimulate investment in targeted areas, and seek direction from Council on how to proceed. Growth areas such as Bronte Village, Kerr Village and Midtown Oakville may benefit from the incentive programs that can be established through Community Improvement Plans to assist with improvements to private property and the public realm, as well as heritage conservation and brownfield remediation.
On January 13, 2014, Council approved a pilot Community Improvement Plan for Kerr Village.
