The Official Plan for the Municipality of Clarington outlines the goals and objectives for Community Improvement. Clarington has a long history of supporting its historical downtown areas and rural communities while taking advantage of federal or provincial funding programs to support civic improvements. This is the first formal Community Improvement Plan for Clarington. The main purpose of this Community Improvement Plan [CIP] is to articulate a vision for Orono, based on an assessment of past experience and future prospects, along with a realistic “road map” of how to get there.
