A small business in Acton is the most recent recipient of the Town’s Community Improvement Program (CIP).

As a result, Acton Optical received a Façade Improvement Grant to help with renovations to the exterior of one of the oldest church structures in Halton Hills.

The church, which dates back to 1877, is home to the business, located at 80 Mill St. East.

Mayor Bonnette, Local and Regional Councillor Somerville and Ward 1 Councillors Hurst and Albano presented Acton Optical with the cheque for $12,500 to help support the completed improvements to their business façade, including new windows and doors, new eaves, and refurbishment of the brickwork.

“Being able to support improvements to this historic building in downtown Acton, not only provides assistance for our local business but allows us to invest in our community for long-term beautification of our downtown areas,” said Mayor Rick Bonnette.

The CIP supports eligible businesses in the Town of Halton Hills by providing grants and loan programs. These aim to encourage revitalization, attract additional private sector investment, fast-track the redevelopment of underutilized properties and support local jobs.
