The Town of Bracebridge is expanding its popular sign improvement program.

During the last session of general committee, councillors decided to increase the areas eligible for Signage Improvement Program funding to include all properties designated Industrial and Business Area within the Town’s Official Plan.

Councilor Rick Maloney said he was regularly being approached by business outside the downtown area seeking financial grants to create new signage, as the town currently does in the downtown area.

Maloney said with the lack of space available in the downtown core, many new businesses are setting up areas like Balls Falls and Ecclestone Drive.

Staff confirmed they’ll have the budget to cover the expansion for this year. A complete review of the Community Improvement Program is scheduled for 2020.
