Ritchot Businesses Receive Enhancement Grants


Ritchot’s Community Development Corporation (CDC) is ready to announce that one of their priority projects for 2018 is officially underway.

Last year, the RM of Ritchot launched its Main Street Revitalization Concept Plan Project, and now the CDC is supporting the project by investing in local businesses through Main Street enhancement grants. The Board of Directors recently put out a call for applications for the grants.

A key criterion for the grants was that businesses had to either be located along Main Street or a central business street. Businesses could apply for funds to assist with exterior renovations on their storefronts, such as lighting upgrades, landscaping upgrades, painting or exterior finishing renovations, or adding accessibility features.

Eight businesses in the municipality have been selected to receive funds ranging from $400 to $2,750, all of which will be undertaking renovation work in 2018.

In Ste. Agathe, Lucky Luc’s Bar and Grill will complete renovations to its entranceways and exterior façade, BSI Insurance will be acquiring new signage, and Ste. Agathe Service will install exterior brickwork.

In St. Adolphe, Affinity Insurance will be installing new signage, and the St. Adolphe Pharmacy will renovate the exterior of their building, including new paint.

In Île-des-Chênes, Adventure Power Products will be getting new landscaping. IDC Garage will upgrade their lighting and signage, and LDN Auto will landscape their property and pour new asphalt.
