Community Improvement Plans from Other Municipalities

Community improvement planning activities are shaped by local needs, priorities and circumstances. Through community improvement plans, municipalities can:

• focus public attention on local priorities and municipal initiatives
• target areas in transition or in need of repair, rehabilitation and
redevelopment
• facilitate and encourage community change in a coordinated manner
• stimulate private sector investment through municipal incentive-based
programs.

A community improvement approach is a flexible, comprehensive, coordinated and strategic framework for dealing with lands and buildings, which can address many physical, social, economic or environmental matters.

The following are examples of Community Improvement Plans from various municipalities in Ontario that will be used as reference for the Temagami Community Improvement plan because of their similarities in terms of geography, size and/or objectives.
