COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT PLAN ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
The Town of The Blue Mountains is excited to announce the launch of the Community Improvement Plan program, with applications being accepted between April 3, 2023 – May 12, 2023.
A Community Improvement Plan is a planning and economic development tool that municipalities may use to facilitate broad community revitalization goals through grants or loans to private property owners and tenants.
The Town has two Community Improvement Plans that aim to serve as a long-term strategy to revitalize the community, improve the quality of life of the community's residents, better utilize under-developed properties and promote private investment in land and buildings.
The Housing Within Reach CIP is designed to encourage and facilitate the development of attainable housing. The Town Wide Revitalization CIP is designed to encourage private property improvement and revitalization.
The application intake period will remain open until May 12, 2023. Interested applicants are encouraged to arrange a pre-application consultation with Town Staff to discuss and confirm application requirements. Following the consultation, applicants will be required to submit a completed application form, including supporting documentation for evaluation.

BEAVER VALLEY SUSTAINABLE TOURISM STRATEGY
Grey County, The Municipality of Grey Highlands, the Town of The Blue Mountains, and RTO7 are working together to develop the first Sustainable Tourism Strategy for Beaver Valley. The goal of the project is to co-develop a sustainable tourism strategy to envision the desired future state of the Beaver Valley Corridor, along with a three-year action plan to move toward this vision.
A key component of the research process is to gather insight, input, and feedback directly from a variety of stakeholders in Beaver Valley whose perspective and experience is extremely important to this process.
If you are a resident of Beaver Valley, operate a visitor-facing business, work at an organization related to tourism in Beaver Valley, or have another interest in tourism in Beaver Valley, we would like to invite you to complete an online questionnaire by using the link below:
Beaver Valley Tourism Strategy Survey
The questionnaire is made up of 13-20 questions and will take you around 10 minutes to complete. The survey will remain open until Friday, April 14th, at 5:00 p.m. EST. The information you share will remain private and confidential.
