SIOUX LOOKOUT – On May 19, 2014 the Municipality of Sioux Lookout is launching its second intake of the Community Improvement Plan Incentive Program. This is an initiative designed to revitalize and rehabilitate four project areas within the Municipality: Downtown area, the Gateway Entrance, Hudson, and the Sioux Lookout Municipal Airport.
Chief Administrative Officer Ann Mitchell commented, “The CIP Incentive Program will support the continued growth and success of retail business, the development of residential areas, and the improvement of residential and commercial properties. The individual and collective revitalization efforts in the community will improve the appearance of properties and will also serve to make Sioux Lookout a more attractive place to visit and community in which to invest.”

• Façade Improvements Grant
• Improved Signage Grant
• Landscaping Grant
• Application Fees Grant
• Residential Intensification Grant
