We are pleased to be able to share GREAT NEWS!
The Musquodoboit Harbour Community Development Plan was on the Agenda for consideration at the November 23rd HRM Council Meeting, and the recommendations made in the Staff Report were unanimously accepted by council!
The Staff Report takes into account all of the planning, development and visioning work done for Musquodoboit Harbour from 2006 onward, but leans heavily on the 86-page Community Development Plan document prepared for the MHACCCA by consulting firm Ekistics that was published and submitted in 2017.
The approved Motion stated HRM’s support to:
1. Initiate a process to consider amendments to the Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-law for Eastern Shore West to ensure development provisions for commercial, industrial, institutional, open space and recreational uses are compatible with the village core and support carrying out the Musquodoboit Harbour Community Vision and Community Development Plan;
2. Follow the public participation program for municipal planning strategy amendments as approved by Regional Council on February 25, 1997;
3. Include $100,000 in the upcoming 2022/23 operating budget to study servicing options for a Wastewater Management District in Musquodoboit Harbour; and
4. Explore funding options from other levels of government for the capital cost of sidewalk infrastructure.
