FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Tuesday, September 25, 2018 (Wentworth, NS) –
In July, the Councils of the Municipality of the District of West Hants and the Town of Windsor passed a motion to enter into negotiations with the Province to consolidate the two municipalities through special legislation. Stemming from the discussions that took place over the past two months, the Councils met with the Department of Municipal Affairs on September 24 and determined that, for the betterment and the sustainability of the region, consolidation of the two municipal units is the best way forward.

The Special legislation to consolidate the Municipality of the District of West Hants and the Town of Windsor was brought forward at the Legislature this morning beginning the process of creating a new regional municipality by April 1, 2020. The legislation consists of transitional matters including the appointment of a transition coordinator and the creation of a transition committee who will oversee the process.

Councils of the Municipality and the Town remain adamant that citizen engagement and communication be at the forefront throughout this process and are looking forward to working with the citizens in both municipal units to build a new, stronger regional government.

The Councils of the Municipality and the Town of Windsor met with staff from the Department of Municipal Affairs on August 29 to discuss and review their request to the Minister of Municipal Affairs for Special Legislation to consolidate our communities.

The Councils agreed that the Queens County amalgamation will be used as the model for our region and after a successful evening of discussion and debate agreed to the following statements:
• Our Councils are committed to moving forward together to create a new regional government for a stronger community.
• Our public will be engaged in a continuous and responsive way to inform our decision making.
• Coherent communication messages will be agreed to in a timely manner by all three parties, the two municipal units and the Province, before being made public.
• It will be made clear by the two municipal units what they can change or influence and what they cannot.
• No individual Councillor or municipal unit will speak on behalf of the group.
• Councils understand that all questions will not be able to be answered as of yet, but lack of details does not equal a lack of commitment.

Just a reminder to those who use our trails at Irishmans Road that they are shared use and a part of the land is leased by the Glooscap Heritage Archers Association. When using the trails (hiking, biking, archery, horseback riding, etc.), please be aware of other users; slow down and use caution around corners and hills to ensure everyone stays safe. 

Additionally, all users MUST stay on the official trail system that has been constructed. Absolutely no one is permitted to create new trails or technical trail features (such as jumps) without permission and direction from Municipal staff. 

If you have any questions please contact our Active Communities Programmer, Bekah Craik at 902-798-2910 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Sustainability is increasingly becoming the focus of municipal efforts in Nova Scotia as well as throughout the rest of Canada. There is a growing realization that we must change our ways if we are to address the critical issues of climate change, energy use, and environmental stewardship. By formulating and implementing innovative and beneficial sustainability plans, municipal leadership will not only make policy decisions to foster a prosperous and healthy community but will set an example for its residents to embrace sustainability principles and actions.

Municipal sustainability efforts are aided by encouragement and incentives from the provincial and federal governments. The Canada-Nova Scotia Gas Tax Agreement of 2005 provides for the transfer of revenues from the federal excise tax on gasoline to municipalities. These funds are intended to be directed towards environmentally sustainable municipal infrastructure projects. To participate in this funding program all municipalities are required to prepare an Integrated Community Sustainability Plan.
