Sydney regeneration project to hold open house

May 24, 2017

SYDNEY, NS – The Cape Breton Regional Municipality, Sydney Waterfront District Association and the National Trust for Canada invite residents to join them for an open house this Saturday, May 27. The open house will be held at 15 Prince Street, bottom floor of the former Smart Shop Place, from 1 p.m to 4 p.m.

The municipality, Sydney Waterfront District and National Trust for Canada have joined forces for the implementation of a Main Street Regeneration initiative for the Sydney Waterfront District. Over the next two years they will be working with residents and the local business community on projects that have significant economic, social, cultural and environmental benefits.

The Main Street Regeneration Project will engage CBRM’s business and tourism sectors, municipal leaders, cultural, social and educational organizations and residents of all ages and backgrounds. This collaborative partnership will focus on new and creative ways to make the Sydney Waterfront District a vibrant social and cultural destination.

The partners will work with Sydney’s heritage as a building block to regenerating Sydney’s core commercial areas. It will significantly enhance Sydney’s overall image as a destination for cultural events and activities, for unique businesses and services, and as a place of pride and unique interest for both CBRM residents and visitors to experience.

The open house this Saturday, May 27, will give CBRM residents and stakeholders the opportunity to learn more about the regeneration project and what’s to come over the next two years.
