FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Future Use Business Plan Approved
(LUNENBURG, NS - April 14, 2015) The Town of Lunenburg is pleased to announce the release of the approved Lunenburg Academy Future Use Business Plan.
The Lunenburg Academy Future Use Business Plan was commissioned by the Town of Lunenburg in the fall of 2014 and is the result of eight months of research, consultation and development with the many stakeholders, individuals and organizations, government representatives, current tenants and other interested parties of the Lunenburg Academy.
Since the spring of 2012, when the Lunenburg Academy ceased to operate as a public school and the building reverted back to the Town's full possession, various steps have been taken to repurpose this remarkable heritage site.
"I'm delighted to share the Lunenburg Academy Future Use Business Plan with the public, and look forward to its implementation," said Mayor Rachel Bailey, "Along with our partners including the Lunenburg Academy Foundation, we look forward to continuing our efforts to repurpose our iconic 'Castle on the Hill'."
