Town of Essex has received a $250,000 grant from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs’ Rural Economic Development grant program towards the Harrow and Essex Centre Streetscape Projects.

“As a Council, we are united in recognizing the importance of investing in our urban cores, supporting the small businesses and citizens that call them home, and creating a unique vision that reflects our community,” said Mayor Larry Snively. “We appreciate the funds that help will make this project possible and we are excited to get shovels in the ground to make it a reality.”

In 2020, Town Council agreed to invest more than $4.5 million toward the implementation of the Harrow Streetscape Project, although COVID-19 delayed the engineering phase and start of construction.

Project construction is now slated to begin in Spring of 2021.

The  grant funding will partially cover the cost of capital investments such as landscaping and street furniture such as  benches and bike racks.
