Notice of Public Meeting

Regarding the Expansion of the

Colchester Centre Community Improvement Plan

On February 26, 2018, a special meeting of Council will  be held at the Colchester Community Centre, 100 Jackson Street, Colchester (Colchester Marina), starting at 6p.m.

The purpose of the meeting is to hear public comment regarding the extension of the Colchester Community Improvement Project Area and program to include all lands on the north and south sides of County Road 50 from Dunn Road to County Road 41 to the west of Colchester and from Islandview Lane to County Road 23, east of Colchester.

A Community Improvement Plan (CIP) is intended to assist with the revitalization and economic enhancement of specific areas within a community by means of financial incentives and other initiatives implemented through public private partnerships exclusively in a designated CIP Project Area (CIPPA).  Part of Colchester Centre is in a CIPPA and it is proposed that the existing Colchester CIPPA be expanded to incorporate the lands fronting on County Road 50 within the limits of the Town of Essex.

A PowerPoint presentation setting out the purpose and intent of a CIP and the objectives to be achieved will be given by Town staff and the floor will be then opened for public discussion and comment and Council direction. No decision will be made at this public meeting.

This will be followed up, at a regular meeting of Council, by a report to Council from the Planning Department with specific recommendations as to how to proceed with the proposed expansion if subsequent to the public meeting expansion is favored by Council.

For more information concerning the proposed expansion and or for general information about the CIP program, please contact Sarah Girard, Planning Clerk, Town Hall, 519-776-7336 x1128, sgirard@essex.ca
