Kingsville Kick-Starts Downtown Revitalization
September 15, 2008
Ontario is helping the Town of Kingsville enhance its downtown area and community gateways.
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.
The funding is part of the Rural Economic Development Program which invests in community-based projects in three priority areas:
"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."
