The Business Improvement Program (BIP), introduced by the City of Corner Brook a few years back, is an annually budgeted initiative aimed at improving the frontal appearance of commercial properties in the City, while maintaining their traditional character and appeal. Specific guidelines were developed for this purpose, some of these include obtaining a building permit, at least two quotations for the proposed work, and meeting certain conditions in terms of constructions and/or landscaping. An evaluation committee needs to pre-approve the proposal before the actual work is undertaken.
Under the BIP, tax credit is offered by the City based on actual investment, subject to a maximum credit of $10,000. In addition, the building permit fee is refunded. The program, initially rolled out for the Downtown area, was later expanded to cover all the businesses in the City.
The BIP 2016 application deadline was 16th September 2016. No more applications will be received under this Program.

The Corner Brook Downtown Business Association will hold its Annual General Meeting and election of officers on May 17th, 7p.m. at Swirsky’s on Broadway. Following the meeting will be an informal reception and open bar.
All member businesses are urged to send representation to the meeting.
Topics to be discussed will include expansion of the business improvement area boundaries, electronic and third-party signage, and downtown beautification initiatives.
“The meeting will be a chance for our members to share their concerns and ideas. As well, it will be a great opportunity to learn about new projects and opportunities that may benefit their business,” said Jim Parsons, Chair of the Board of Directors.
Now, more than ever, it is important for downtown businesses to cooperate and have their voices heard.
“Despite the difficult economic situation, the downtown is undergoing a renaissance. There is a new energy among businesses in the downtown to make subtle, but important improvements to the area, and a willingness to work together to make these things happen.”
For more information on the meeting, please contact Heather Wellman at 638-5423 or email@example.com.

October’s Business of the Month: Silver Scissors and The Emerald Spa
Silver Scissors and the Emerald Spa
Owner: Elizabeth Brake
Did you grow up in Corner Brook?
Yes, I grew up here in Corner Brook. My family is from here and I love the area. Newfoundland, especially the west coast, is a beautiful place.
Why did you decide to open your business?
I wanted to establish a business here in Corner Brook that a stylist could thrive on. I opened the store in 1978. I wanted to provide many benefits to my employees that many places don’t, including health plans, savings plans, and RRSPs. I wanted to provide more than what was available here.
For people who haven’t been to your business, why should they check it out?
Here at Silver Scissors and the Emerald Spa, our staff is highly educated. They’ve travelled around Newfoundland, Canada, and the US to attend classes and gain experience. I’ve also brought people in to educate the staff. We are a full-service salon and spa. We pride ourselves on giving the best service possible in a clean environment.
Tell us a bit about your business and what your business has to offer.
Our salon has services that the average salon doesn’t provide, including IPL (intense pulse light therapy), spray tanning, and creative nail art.
What’s your favourite thing about our downtown?
I love that our downtown is such a safe place. You can walk around our downtown feeling comfortable. I love going to the Majestic lawn just to relax; it’s a gorgeous place.
