Initial Public Consultation Stage - Summer 2014 (partnership with BCAF)

THE MUNICIPALITY OF THE DISTRICT OF LUNENBURG -

WE WANT TO GATHER YOUR FEEDBACK, BEFORE MAKING ANY DECISION ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF A LOCAL COASTAL POLICY.

One of the initial actions identified in the Municipality's 2013 Climate Change Action Plan was the development of a local coastal policy. In Council's consideration: the first phase in the development of any policy is to consult with local residents and landowners along the coast, and gather their feedback on what policy options may be pursued. Local residents may recall that the Province initiated some discussion on coastal management issues in 2011 - the Municipality is interested in hearing from citizens on how the local government may become involved.

Municipal planning staff is working with staff from Bluenose Coastal Action Foundation, and will host four meetings in late June / early July.

All four meetings will start with a short presentation at 7:00PM, followed by an "open-house" to review related mapping information, and to fill out specific feedback forms.

Public feedback will be gathered and presented back to Municipal Council, before there is any determination of any further action or policy development to be taken.

Dates and locations of the meetings are as follows:

Monday June 16 Petite Riviere Fire Hall 18 Petite Riviere Rd
Wednesday June 18        Riverport Community Centre 79 Lower LaHave Rd
Wednesday June 25 St Barnabas Church (Blue Rocks)           10 the Lane
Wednesday July 9 Mahone Bay Centre 45 School St

All members of the public are welcome to attend any of the four dates.

If unable to attend, the Municipality still wants to gather your input.

You can access a copy of the Feedback form (in either PDF or Word format), and return the form either electronically (via email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or by regular mail to:
