Glace Bay and Area Revitalization Plan - Stakeholder's Meeting



Glace Bay & Area Revitalization Stakeholders Meeting

Business Cape Breton (BCB) in partnership with the Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM) and the Province of Nova Scotia is embarking on a Glace Bay & Area Revitalization Planning process scheduled to take place for the next 3 months. Final recommendations are planned to be released in June 2017. The goal of the project is to work with the local stakeholders (community/public/private) to identify projects and initiatives that will have a transformative effect on Glace Bay & Area. Glace Bay and Area includes Glace Bay, Dominion and Reserve Mines. Potential ideas may include downtown improvements, new parks and open space, better waterfront connections and activities, active transportation improvements, signature events, or any other idea that could have a transformative effect on the area.

BCB has retained Ekistics Plan+Design to lead the process commencing with the first stakeholder engagement session on March 29, 2017 at the Glace Bay Fire Hall (87 Reserve St.) from 6pm to 9pm. Please come to the event with your transformative ideas for your community. Once the ideas have been collected and reviewed, the consultants will prepare plans for some of the top-ranked projects. The projects recommended for inclusion in the plan will improve the economic development potential of the area, will improve the quality of life for residents, and will be readily implementable with minimal constraints. Projects identified in the plan will still have to seek funding upon the plan’s completion. The report will identify a range of projects that will be recommended for their potential to create positive impacts in the community. The consultants will also identify means for implementing the projects in the years to come.

This plan will have a pivotal impact on the region resulting in an overall economic contribution to the Cape Breton Regional Municipality. Be prepared to bring your best ideas and optimism to our first public workshop on March 29th at the Glace Bay Fire Hall (87 Reserve St.) from 6-9pm. We're anxious to hear your ideas and thoughts for a better future for Glace Bay and Area. Pre-register at
