The Quinte West Community Improvement Plan (CIP) provides a framework for the creation and implementation of various programs aimed at revitalizing and re-shaping the physical and social environment of the downtown and waterfront areas of the Trenton and Frankford Wards in the City of Quinte West. The CIP also establishes financial incentives to encourage property owners to improve the appearance of their storefronts. 

Program Objectives

  • To encourage the continued vitality and economic viability of the commercial cores in all seasons
  • To stimulate new investment in public and private lands
  • To encourage consistency in urban design guidelines
  • To create an attractive image of the City that reflects the historic character and heritage of the community
  • To reinforce the commercial cores as a focus for the community
  • To improve connections between commercial areas, the waterfront, and recreational trails, and to improve pedestrian access within the core areas
  • To provide incentives for the rehabilitation of the commercial core areas as an attractive and vibrant destination for the citizens of and visitors to the City


The City of Quinte West is pleased with the success of the CIP Incentive Program. Since 2005, the City has allocated more than $600,000 in funding for building fa├žade improvements, signage, and landscaping in the downtown business improvement area. The CIP Incentive Program continues to grow and prosper.
