Streetscape Beautification Grant

The Spruce the Bruce (STB) program assists communities with improvements that make them more attractive, distinctive, and pedestrian-friendly.

Fixtures and features on downtown streets can make a major contribution to the character of the community. The Streetscape Beautification Grant encourages communities to envision their character and begin to implement it on the ground.

Make sure your design reflects your community toolkit which can be found at
