Kemptville Campus will receive $84,900 for redevelopment through the Eastern Ontario Development Program’s (EODP) Community Innovation projects stream. The announcement was made by Grenville Community Futures Development Corporation’s Executive Director Heather Lawless at the Economic Development Summit held at the North Grenville Municipal Centre recently.
“This investment in the Municipality of North Grenville will assist in repurposing a significant community asset, increasing community capacity for business development and positioning the community for economic diversification activities,” said GCFDC Chair Chris McCorkell.
The funding is pending completion on the sale of the former Kemptville College Campus to the Municipality of North Grenville from the Agricultural Research Institute of Ontario, a provincial agency of the Ontario government. Once the sale is complete, the money will help to transform Kemptville Campus into a multi-tenant, education and community hub focusing on three pillars: education and training, health and wellness, and economic development.
