It's Fire Prevention Week!

As “Fire Prevention Week” approaches, the Cape Breton Regional Fire & Emergency Service, Prevention Division encourages residents to “Look. Listen. Learn.”

We have lots of important information to share with you this week:

Mayor & Council to honour local Cadet Units with ‘Freedom of the City’ Ceremony on Saturday 

CBRM Mayor Cecil Clarke and Council are pleased to invite the public to our bestowing ceremony of the ‘Freedom of the City’, the City’s highest honour, to our local CBRM Cadet Units.

The ceremony will take place at City Hall on the Esplanade in Sydney, on Saturday, October 6, 2018 at 1 p.m. (1300 hours).

All Cadet Corps and Squadrons will parade from the Joan Harris Cruise Pavilion, along the Esplanade, arriving at City Hall for 1p.m.  

Granting Freedom of the City is the highest honour a city can bestow. This historic tradition signifies a city’s trust in a military unit, organization or dignitary and serves as an official welcome, granting the freedom to parade or visit the city at leisure, allowing them the privilege to march into the city "with drums beating, colours flying, and bayonets fixed".

The following Cadet Units will be receiving the distinct honour, ‘Freedom of the City’, from the Cape Breton Regional Municipality:

NOTICE OF PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING

An informal public meeting will be held on

Thursday, October 11th at 7 pm at St. George’s Church Hall, 52 Nepean Street, Sydney

to discuss the possibility of amending the Secondary Planning Strategy and Land Use Bylaw for Sydney’s North End. 

 Specifically, the discussion will focus on the possibility of allowing St. George’s Church Hall to be repurposed as the location of a microbrewery cidery and a cidery “tasting room”.  The current policies of the North End Planning Strategy do not allow for such a use in that location.  For that reason, the policies must be amended if the proposed cidery is to proceed.  Please note that is proposed that the cidery be located only in the building currently used as a church hall; St. George’s Church itself is not part of this proposal.
