Community Improvement Programs

The City of Cornwall maintains three programs designed to encourage and assist property owners to improve their properties, and by extension, improve their local communities.

 Heart of the City

There are seven programs available through Heart of the City, with targeted areas for revitalization projects including the downtown core and Le Village. Generally speaking, the initiatives focus on aesthetic improvements, as well as upgrading and/or renovating commercial developments and ancillary residential units.

Brownfields are abandoned, vacant, derelict or underutilized commercial and industrial properties, usually provided with urban services, where past actions have resulted in actual or perceived contamination. Redeveloping Brownfields sites provides an opportunity for neighbourhood revitalization, site clean-up and increased tax revenue, among others.
