NS Utility & Review Board Public Hearing
For a Preliminary Order for the Proposed Amalgamation of the Municipality of the District of West Hants and the Town of Windsor
The Hearing for a Preliminary Order will be held:
Date: Tuesday, June 28, 2016 at 10:00 a.m.
Place: Hants County War Memorial Community Centre, 78 Thomas Street Windsor, Nova Scotia
All persons are entitled to attend the hearing. More specific details can be found by clicking here . As well, more information is available on the NS Utility & Review Board's website under Case No. M07325 at http://uarb.novascotia.ca/fmi/iwp/cgi?-db=UARBv12&-loadframes .
NOTE: At the June 28th hearing, the NS Utility & Review Board will determine which studies need to be conducted. There will be an alloted timeframe in which they are to be concluded so that they can be considered at the hearing that will occur in early 2017. Some common studies that may be requested (as was with the Town of Hantsport) include financial impact studies, infrastructure, etc. These independent studies will provide factual information on the impact to West Hants and Windsor citizens should amalgamation be approved. These studies will help citizens make a more informed decision with respect to amalgamation. Any impact speculation prior to these studies being done is premature (i.e. future tax rates, infrastructure, etc). These studies will prove valuable and beneficial to EVERYONE involved no matter where you live.

Notice: King Street Traffic Flow Changes
Trial Starting May 16, 2016
The Town of Windsor will be performing a three month trial to change the flow of traffic on a portion of King Street. This will be a monitored and evaluated trial with the possibility of permanent changes.
There will be two affected areas of King Street and adjacent streets. Please refer to the below descriptions and maps.
Area 1- King St becomes two-way between O'Brien St. and Wentworth St. (see map below)
Points of Interest
- Direct route from Wentworth to the Downtown core making travel into the Town's core simpler for out of town traffic
- Safer to avoid vehicles traveling the wrong way on the one-way portion of King St.
- No loss of parking spaces
- O'Brien St. remains the same, right turn only heading downtown
- Stannus St. remains the same with the 'Stop* sign and no left tun
Area II - Stop sign is moved from O'Brien St. to King St. (see map below)
Points of Interest
- Allow for continuous flow of traffic on O'Brien St.
- Better sight lines for stopped traffic in order to proceed safely
- Crosswalks will all remain the same, but are not depicted in the maps
- New signage and street markings (similar to the maps) will be added
- All new “Stop” signs will have a flashing red light

Great Nova Scotia Pick-Me-Up 2016
It is that time of year again. The snow has melted and the trees are bare, leaving an unsightly amount of litter on the ground for everyone to see. Litter is not only an eyesore but has serious environmental and economic impacts as well. It can make our public and recreational spaces unsafe, be mistaken for food by wildlife and end up in our lakes, streams and eventually the ocean. Studies also show that litter begets litter, meaning litter tends to accumulate in areas where there is already litter on the ground and can negatively impact tourism hubs such as beaches. For these reasons, we invite you to once again join our initiative and encourage your family, friends, coworkers and the public to take part in a community clean-up. Together, we can protect our wildlife, our waterways and keep our province clean, safe and healthy for all to enjoy. Teams can choose any day in the spring to host their clean-up and we also welcome registrations all year-round!
Collecting data from your clean-up is very important to us. If you haven’t submitted your data card to us from your last clean-up, please do so as soon as possible.
We would like to thank-you in advance for your continued support in striving to keep it clean across Nova Scotia.
