As part of Gravenhurst's Downtown Revitalization project in 2012, a Community Improvement Plan (CIP) was developed to assist property and business owners within the designated Community Improvement Plan Boundaries that need building and façade improvements, and includes tax incentive grants permitted under the Municipal Act, for qualified projects.
