A community open house was held the evening of Wednesday, February 28th to kick off Project Lunenburg, a process for creating and implementing a comprehensive community plan.
Initiated by the Town of Lunenburg, Project Lunenburg is about bringing people together to set the direction for the years to come. The process is overseen by a steering committee of Council members, staff, citizen representatives, and Develop Nova Scotia. UPLAND Planning + Design are the consultants guiding the work.
UPLAND facilitor Erica Brook commented, “The whole UPLAND team was blown away by the turnout and enthusiasm at the launch event! We’re looking forward to more great conversations and taking a closer look at specific matters.”
Wednesday night’s launch saw approximately 200 residents stream through over three hours at the Lunenburg & District Fire Hall, where they contributed ideas on everything from housing to culture on “dotmocracy” easels, a giant map of the town, and at speakers’ corners.
Cheryl Lamerson is recognized for her work with Lunenburg Community Consignment, the South Shore Genealogical Society, the Lunenburg Heritage Society, the Lunenburg & Area Garden Club, the Lunenburg Welcome Committee, the Lunenburg Comprehensive Community Plan Steering Committee, and Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, although she has touched many other events and organizations.
