Kingsville Kick-Starts Downtown Revitalization
September 15, 2008
The community will use a provincial investment of $24,350
to make the area more attractive for visitors and residents with recycled
plastic hanging flower baskets, and metal flower planters filled with
locally grown and purchased plant materials. The town will also use
a small portion of the funds to allow local secondary students to design
festive decorations for the main street.
"I am proud to support a project that will not only revitalize the appearance of this community but will also use the resources of local high school students to enhance their skills training," said Essex MPP Bruce Crozier.
"This project will help us improve the streetscapes and aesthetics of the downtown, bringing new investment and retail opportunities," said Mayor Nelson Santos. "Renewing interest in the downtown will contribute to the retention and/or upgrades of many jobs within the community."
Since 2003, Ontario has invested $60.1 million in 183 projects through the Rural Economic Development Program.
The Town of Kingsville is Canada's southernmost town and has some of the best access to solar resources in the country.
