Community Improvement Plan

Call for Volunteers: Community Improvement Plan Task Force

The Township of Minden Hills is currently seeking interested individuals to participate on a Community Improvement Plan (CIP) Task Force. The CIP Task Force is being created as a mechanism for additional public engagement and input throughout the process to work with the Consulting Firm hired to develop a CIP for Minden Village.

Community Improvement Plans are authorized under the Planning Act to allow municipalities to guide positive growth and change in an area. Specifically, CIPs allow a municipality to:

  • assist with the provision of affordable housing and improving energy efficiency;
  • facilitate and encourage community change in a coordinated manner;
  • provide municipal incentive-based programs to stimulate private-sector activity;
  • acquire, hold, clear, or otherwise prepare land for community improvement; and,
  • construct, repair, rehabilitate or improve buildings on municipal land.

If interested, please submit your name and contact information together with a short statement of any relevant interest and/or experience in the matter with “CIP Task Force” in the subject line by mail or e-mail to:
