District boundary review prior to next CBRM election in 2016

November 13, 2014

CBRM has been instructed by the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board to conduct a review of its electoral districts to ensure the principal of equal representation will be adhered for the 2016 municipal election. A report from the CBRM must be submitted to the Board by the end of the 2014 calendar year.

Council accepted the recommendation of the Planning Department to adjust the boundary of two districts. The Department recommends a re-alignment of the boundary between Districts 3 and 4 by removing the communities of Point Edward and North West Arm from District 4 and adding them to District 3. No other boundary adjustment was advocated. The public is encouraged to learn more about this process and provide its opinions.

The staff report with supporting maps and voter population tables is available below.

Any comments, questions, or recommendations brought to the attention of the Planning Department by no later than December 5th, 2014 will be brought to the attention of Council.
