Town Centre Community Improvement Plan and Incentive Programs

Applications to the Community Improvement Plan programs are due on June 30, 2020. The deadline to submit supplemental information has been extended to September 30, 2020.

The City of Greater Sudbury has developed a Community Improvement Plan (CIP) for Town Centres within the City of Greater Sudbury to:

  • Enhance pedestrian friendly commercial areas to attract people and new business;
  • Address commercial and residential vacancy issues by improving the building stock; and
  • Rehabilitate older, mixed used (and preferably multi storey) building stock and to promote the creation of additional residential dwelling units.
