The City of Kawartha Lakes recently announced another round of Million Dollar Makeover, a funding program designed to encourage and support economic development across the Kawartha Lakes.

Applications for this new round of funding are due Dec. 1, 2020.

The program supports property and business owners improvements to the visual and functional aspects of their commercial, mixed-use commercial/residential or heritage designated residential buildings.

There are four key objectives in this year’s program:

1. Downtown main street revitalization and enhancement

2. Heritage districts and building restoration and improvement

3. Derelict building repairs and improvements to functionality

4. Affordable rental housing private space retrofits in mixed-use buildings

“We’ve seen a lot of success since the program launched in 2018 and together with participating businesses and property owners we’re able to transform Kawartha Lakes one makeover at time,” says Carlie Arbour, economic development officer.

“Building on our past success, this year we’re excited to expand the funding programs to also include a number of new incentives to encourage more investment in our commercial districts and properties with heritage designations.”
