Community Improvement Plan

Contact Us

Community Improvement Plans (CIP) are plans that Towns can prepare that provide direction for local improvements to communities. A Community Improvement Plan can provide strategic help to areas in Town that need to be coordinated.

In the Town of Saugeen Shores, we have focused our community improvement efforts in downtown Port Elgin and downtown Southampton and have prepared a CIP for each area. Each CIP identifies key areas for improvement and enhancement and establishes the framework for action in each downtown. 

Downtown Port Elgin CIP

Downtown Southampton CIP

Our recently prepared Economic Development Strategic Plan recommends creation of a CIP to target new development in the following sectors:

  • Affordable housing
  • Nuclear support service businesses
  • Manufacturing
  • Hotel accommodation

We have prepared a draft CIP intended to attract these projects to Saugeen Shores. We are now consulting on this CIP prior to its adoption and would like your input.  Please review the draft CIP and submit your comments to Jay Pausner at by May 14, 2018. You can also call Mr. Pausner at 519-832-2008 ext.120
