Schomberg Main Street Strategy and Action Plans

King Township is developing a strategy to ensure the vitality of the commercial core of Schomberg's Main Street.  The project is being conducted by King Township in consultation with the Schomberg community.

In 2018, King was successful in receiving $50,000 in partnership funding from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) Rural Economic Development (RED) program. This program funds projects that stimulate economic growth in Ontario’s rural communities by helping to grow the local economy and remove barriers to economic development.

In 2021, King Township received an additional $69,702 in funding through Ontario’s Rural Economic Development (RED) program. Thanks in part to this funding, the Township is able to undertake the actions in the Schomberg Main Street  Revitalization Strategy which will attract investments, businesses, and local partners that will diversify the local economy, bring jobs into the community, and provide easier access to services for local residents.
