Community Improvement Plan Application

Introduction:
The Town of Espanola’s Community Improvement Plan (CIP) for the Downtown Core / Highway 6 Corridor Revitalization establishes a strategy for the revitalization of two commercial areas in Town, the Downtown Core and Highway 6 Corridor, and provides tax assistance for housing projects within the Residential Project Area. The CIP provides design guidelines and incentive programs for improvements, including tax assistance.

All applicants should consult the Town’s CIP document, available on the Town’s website and Municipal Office.

The Town is not responsible for any costs incurred by an applicant in relation to any of the programs, including, without limitation, costs incurred in  anticipation of a grant and/or tax assistance.

Pre-Consultation:
All potential applicants must have a pre-consultation meeting with the Town prior to submitting an application for incentive programs. The purpose of the pre-consultation meeting is to confirm property and project eligibility and program requirements.

Authorization (page 5):
If the applicant is not the owner of the subject land, a written statement by the owner must accompany the application, which authorizes the applicant to act on behalf of the owner as it relates to the subject application.

Plans & Drawing:
All applications for CIP incentive programs must include accurate, detailed copies of plans / drawings / renderings showing the proposed improvements for which the application is being made.

Supporting Information:
Additional information may be required by the municipality in order to evaluate the proposed application for CIP incentive programs. The required information may include studies or reports to deal with such matters as environmental impacts, traffic, water supply, sewage disposal and storm water management.

In addition, the applicant may be required to submit a more detailed site plan, under site plan control, prepared by a qualified professional, showing the proposed development including all new buildings and structures, parking areas, landscaping and other site information as required by the municipality.

Application Processing:
Following mandatory pre-consultation, upon receipt of an application and other information as may be required, the Town will determine whether there is sufficient merit in processing the application further, including compliance with minimum eligibility requirements and design guidelines outlined in the CIP. The Town will evaluate the application, and may require the signing of an agreement for certain programs which outline terms and conditions. Prior to release of funds, the Town will require proof of all costs submitted by the applicant.

In all cases, applicants shall enter into a maintenance agreement with the Town and shall undertake to keep the property and specifically those parts of the property subject to the CIP improvement project in good condition.

Any Outstanding charges from the Town (including tax arrears), work orders, and/or orders or requests to comply on any property owned by the Applicant must be satisfactorily addressed prior to application processing and grant and/or tax assistance payment.

Projects must be completed within one year of approval, but recipients may apply for a grant extension.
