City of Windsor Seeks Input on Elimination of Vacancy Rebate Program from Business Improvement Areas

The City of Windsor is seeking feedback regarding the elimination of the Vacancy Rebate Program for Windsor’s nine Business Improvement Areas (BIA’s).

Currently, Commercial and Industrial property owners, who meet criteria that includes having a property vacant for at least 90 consecutive days, can annually apply for a rebate on eligible property taxes of up to 30%.

The City of Windsor considers the current rebate program as a potential disincentive for property owners to act quickly to fill their empty space and is therefore seeking Ministerial approval to eliminate this program for the Business Improvement Areas.  Provincial guidelines require municipalities to undertake public consultation when seeking to eliminate the Vacancy Rebate Programs.

Please take this short survey to have your say.
