Ontario Invests in a New Vision for Downtown Grimsby
July 8, 2008
Ontario is helping the Town of Grimsby and its partners make their vision for downtown Grimsby a reality.
The province is investing $155,000 to help create a safe, attractive and clean shopping area in the heart of Grimsby for tourists and residents. The project also aims to retain the small town character of the downtown and improve directional signage and landscaping. Through the implementation of this plan, Grimsby will become a place of choice for merchants, residents and shoppers in Niagara.
The funding is part of the Rural Economic Development Program which invests in community-based projects in three priority areas:
"I would like to congratulate the Town of Grimsby and its partners on their initiative to revitalize downtown Grimsby. Through downtown revitalization projects, the McGuinty government is helping to build a strong and prosperous rural Ontario," said Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Minister Leona Dombrowsky.
"We are pleased with the support of the Ontario government for this initiative. With this funding, the vision of making downtown Grimsby a destination of choice in Niagara will become a reality," said Tony Quirk, Chair of the Grimsby Downtown Improvement Area.
Since 2003, Ontario has invested $53 million in 167 projects through the Rural Economic Development Program.
