Huron-Bruce Preparing to Celebrate Nation’s 150th Anniversary
Blyth – Several communities in Huron-Bruce are set to receive funding for infrastructure improvement projects through the Ontario150 Community Capital Program, and local MPP Lisa Thompson is looking forward to the opportunities these grants will bring ahead of the nation’s 150th anniversary.
“Our communities are built on the foundation of togetherness. Supporting the development and maintenance of public spaces that promotes this quality is important to the growth and benefit of all who live, work and play in our towns,” said Thompson. “I’m pleased that four communities throughout Huron-Bruce have been recognized for their civic spirit with funding through the Ontario150 Community Capital Program.”
The Ontario150 Community Capital Program is an investment in the repair, renovation and retrofitting of existing infrastructure with an aim to making communities more accessible, while enhancing the local economy. Recipients of this one-time funding include the Township of North Huron, the Municipality of Central Huron, the Walkerton Golf and Curling Club, and the Goderich Little Theatre.
“I want to extend my congratulations to the recipients of this funding. Each of these initiatives is important to ensuring that our communities remain active, inclusive places that all can enjoy. I look forward to celebrating the completion of these projects, as well as Ontario’s and Canada’s 150th, with family and friends in July,” concluded Thompson.
