The government has announced that as part of the Community, Culture and Recreation Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, almost $40,000,000 will be given to renewal projects across the province of Ontario. Among these projects is a grant that will be given to Tucker House in Clarence-Rockland.
The federal government will provide $85,990 to the landmark, and the provincial government will provide $71,651. This together with $57,334 to be provided through Clarence-Rockland’s budget will fund safety and accessibility improvements to the Tucker House Renewal Centre, including preventative fire measures, durable driving surfaces, accessibility ramps and renovated washrooms.
There is no word yet on when the improvements will commence.
