Communities in Nova Scotia are required by the Municipal Government Act to review the number of electoral boundaries and councillors within their region once every eight years. In November 2014, the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg (MODL) began this process with a series of public consultations to inform the development of new electoral boundary options. The feedback was very helpful in adjusting current electoral boundaries to better reflect criteria as established by the Nova Scotia Utilities Review (NSUARB).
Further refinements and adjustments have now been made and the public is invited to review updated versions and provide additional feedback. This feedback will be used to produce final recommendations for the NSUARB for approval. Once approved, the new electoral boundaries will take effect for the 2016 election year.
Public meetings will be held as follows:
- April 1, 2015 – Mahone Bay Community Centre, 7 p.m.
