FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Town of Pictou Begins Project to Develop Waterfront Plan
 

Pictou, NS - The Town of Pictou, in partnership with Develop Nova Scotia, is excited to launch an exciting new initiative to develop a Waterfront Master Plan for the Town of Pictou. The Waterfront Master Plan will position the waterfront as the prime destination for residents, visitors, and businesses, and will work to tie ongoing initiatives along the waterfront together. 

The Waterfront Master Plan will ensure the waterfront is developed in a strategic and sustainable manner and will be supported by a Vision for the waterfront, which will provide the benchmark for change. 

Over the next few months, the Town will work closely with residents, businesses and other community members to create a Plan with the goal of supporting and enhancing the natural, cultural, and historical qualities of the waterfront. Community participation will be essential, and there will be many opportunities to share and contribute your thoughts, ideas, and opinions over the next month: 

  • Visit the interactive map
  • Join a resident small group discussion
  • Participate in waterfront in-person engagements events 

In addition to community engagement sessions, there will be consultation with other local and regional stakeholders, including Pictou Land First Nation, and other neighbouring communities. 

Information for this project will be posted on the Town’s website www.townofpictou.ca/  and the Town’s Facebook Page.
