Any property owners on Stittsville Main Street who could use some financial help? You might want to get in touch with your councillor… there’s a fund of $850,000 available city-wide for main street revitalization projects. Here’s an excerpt from a memo sent last week to Ottawa’s mayor and city councillors from Stephen Willis, General Manager of Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development at the City of Ottawa:

“…As per the announcement, Ontario is investing up to $26 million in the Main Street Revitalization Initiative. The funding is to support capital improvements for energy efficiency, accessibility, aesthetics, and marketability of small businesses within main street areas, and encourage strategic public investments in municipal and other public infrastructure within main street areas that will support small businesses.
