Please help us keep Town streets free of ice and snow by ensuring your vehicle is parked off-street during winter storms and snow removal operations by the Public Works Department. We can do the job faster and better if your vehicles are not left on the street during this time. With your help we can make pedestrian and vehicle safety a priority by finding alternate parking locations during snow clearing and salting operations.
In the Town of Lunenburg, the RCMP enforce the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act which: 1.) prohibits parking or leaving a motor vehicle, whether attended or unattended, on any street that might interfere with or obstruct snow removal, or winter maintenance; 2.) authorizes a Police Officer to have a motor vehicle moved or towed to some other place if it is interfering with or obstructing snow removal or winter maintenance; and 3.) provides that the cost of moving or towing the motor vehicle may be recovered from the owner.
The Town of Lunenburg operates several parking lots where overnight (5:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m.) parking is permitted for a fee ($33.70/month HST included). Parking passes may be purchased at the Lunenburg Town Hall, 119 Cumberland Street (902-634-4410).
The cooperation of all drivers is appreciated. For more information, please contact the RCMP Lunenburg Office at 902-634-8674, Public Works Department at 902-634-8992, or online at http://www.explorelunenburg.ca/parking-in-lunenburg.html .
TOWN OF LUNENBURG ELECTRIC UTILITY NOTICE OF TEMPORARY POWER OUTAGE REQUIRED FOR SUBSTATION WORK
Please be advised that the previously-indicated power outage from 12:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. on Sunday, December 4, 2016 has been rescheduled by one week to 12:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. on Sunday, December 11, 2016.
The outage is a joint initiative between the Town’s electric utility and Nova Scotia Power involving important work on both the Town and Nova Scotia Power systems near the substation. The work performed during this outage will minimize future power interruptions. Significant weather this week in Northern Nova Scotia has led to delays relating to site preparation work by Nova Scotia Power, as their crews are restoring power to their customers.
The Town of Lunenburg Electric Utility still intends to make the best use of the power interruption on Sunday, December 11th from 12AM-6AM, with staff performing work in the Town that would otherwise require an outage.
We regret any inconvenience and appreciate your co-operation.
If you have any questions, please contact Aaron Long, Electric Utility Manager, 119 Cumberland Street,
Lunenburg, NS, 902-634-4410.
The Town of Lunenburg and the Bluenose Academy School Advisory Committee are working together in an effort to improve pedestrian safety for students and residents. Crosswalk flags have been installed at six locations along Falkland Street and Victoria Road. Crosswalk flags are a tool used to increase your visibility to motorists prior to crossing the street. Make sure that all vehicles travelling in either direction have stopped before crossing the street with or without a crosswalk flag. Buckets on either side of the crosswalk are used to store flags when not being used. If you see an empty bucket on the other side of the street, it would be helpful if you took a few extra flags with you when crossing the street and placed them in the empty bucket for pedestrians crossing in the opposite direction.

The Town of Lunenburg is pleased to offer the following leaf collection opportunities to assist residents with their Fall leaf clean-up:
• Leaves can be placed in your compost cart or clear bags for pick-up on scheduled “green week” collection days.
• An additional curbside leaf collection is scheduled for Friday, November 18. Leaves must be placed in your compost cart or clear bags.
• The Town of Lunenburg Public Works Department will also do a single pass leaf collection on each street starting in “New Town” (west of ESSO) from Monday, November 21 to Friday, December 2 and in “Old Town” (east of ESSO) from Monday, December 5 to Friday, December 16. Please ensure your leaves are placed near the edge of the street prior to the dates noted above. There will only be one collection pass per street.
Please remember not to rake leaves into gutters, ditches or the street to prevent storm drains from clogging and slippery road conditions.
