Public meeting: Brownfield Redevelopment Community Improvement Plan update

Guelph City Council will hold a public meeting in accordance with the Planning Act to consider changes to the Brownfield Redevelopment Community Improvement Plan (CIP).

Monday, April 9, 2018
6:30 p.m.
City Hall, Council Chambers
1 Carden Street, Guelph

About the Brownfield Redevelopment CIP

The existing Brownfield Redevelopment CIP provides financial incentives for the remediation and redevelopment of contaminated properties, to encourage remediation of soil and groundwater, make more efficient use of vacant or underutilised land and improve neighbourhood conditions. The Brownfield Redevelopment CIP applies to all lands within the City.

CIP update

The City conducted a review of the CIP’s performance over the last five years, and is proposing minor revisions to improve clarity and ease administration. One major improvement would allow late payments of Development Charges on brownfield sites.  All of the CIP programs are proposed to be extended for five years.
