Town

Community Improvement Plan

The Town of Carleton Place is working with Dillon Consulting on the development of a Community Improvement Plan (CIP).

The intent of the CIP project is to identify priorities and design financial incentives for three separate objectives: (i) create more affordable housing, (ii) revitalize the downtown, and (iii) encourage the redevelopment of underutilized properties commonly referred to as ‘brownfields.’



Community Improvement Plan Project Update

The Interim Report for the Carleton Place Community Improvement Plan (CIP) project is now available for review.  The purpose of this report is to provide a general outline of the results and findings of work undertaken during the Phase 1 (Background Research/Analysis) portion of the project, including a summary of stakeholder input, public input, and the major themes for the CIP, as identified through consultation.

***REVISED SAVE THE DATE***

The Community Improvement Plan Public Information Centre (PIC) #2 has been changed.  The REVISED date is now: Tuesday, June 28th, 2022 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The intention of PIC #2 is to present the draft CIP and its financial incentives to the public for their feedback.

Further information relating to PIC #2, including the presentation format (virtual or in-person), will be released towards the beginning of June on the Project page, through the Town’s social media channels, and via the Town’s e-newsletter CP Scoop.


Summary of Stakeholder and Public Input

Dillon Consulting has prepared a document which provides a summary of feedback received from stakeholders and the public during the preliminary stage of the Carleton Place Community Improvement Plan (CIP) project. The “What We Heard” engagement summary provides a brief overview of the knowledge gained through targeted liaison with stakeholders in the community and a Public Information Centre (PIC), which was held on January 27th, 2022. The summary then closes with a brief discussion on the major themes that the project team identified during their engagement with stakeholders and the public.

Presentation and Survey from Public Information Centre #1

The Town of Carleton Place held a Public Information Centre on Thursday, January 27th, 2022, to introduce the Carleton Place Community Improvement Plan (CIP) project. The intent of the CIP project is to identify priorities and design financial incentives for three separate objectives: (i) create more affordable housing, (ii) revitalize the downtown, and (iii) encourage the redevelopment of underutilized properties commonly referred to as ‘brownfields.’

The purpose of the Public Information Centre was to provide the public with an opportunity to learn about the CIP project and offer their insight on areas or sites of interest.  Survey questions were asked throughout the presentation by the Town’s consultant hired for the project, Dillon Consulting. In order to allow for further community feedback for those who were unable to attend last night’s session, the presentation slides along with the survey questions are available to review below. 

Residents will have the ability to provide their responses to the survey questions until 4:00 p.m. on Monday, February 7th, 2022.  The feedback received to these survey questions and during this Public Information Centre will be used to help the Town prepare the CIP which will be presented to the public at a later date.
