Tamworth-Erinsville Plans For Sustainable Future
September 26, 2008
Ontario is investing $83,225 to help revitalize the Tamworth-Erinsville economic community.
The province will fund improvements to Tamworth's streetscape, pedestrian spaces and children's playgrounds as well as to their promotional materials such as business/services signage, tour pamphlets and website. A portion of the funds will also go towards exploring the use of switchgrass as an alternate "green" energy source.
The funding is part of the Rural
Economic Development Program which invests in community-based projects
in three priority areas:
"This project will not only enhance Tamworth's physical
appearance, but will also allow the community to develop its economic
skills through new alternative crop projects," said Leona
Dombrowsky, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. "The
McGuinty government is a strong supporter of innovative 'green' projects,
such as this one."
Since 2003, Ontario has invested $60.3 million in 185 projects through the Rural Economic Development Program.
The Township of Stone Mills is the municipal authority for Tamworth-Erinsville.
