Lunenburg Community Centre: Washroom Renovations

The Lunenburg Community Centre at 15 Green Street is about to undergo washroom renovations! The work will be completed by JND Construction Ltd. of Dayspring and will take place during the month of March 2020.

  • The work will have minimal impact in preventing the public from accessing services in the Community Centre. The auditorium, fitness studio and weight room will still be fully operational during this time.
  • The flooring in the front portion of the Community Centre (lobbies, hallway, and washrooms) will be refurbished and resealed. When this work is in progress, only one entrance will be available and will be marked with appropriate signage and barriers to direct the public.
  • In the event that the washrooms may be unavailable, there will be a porta-potty available for public use.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this exciting construction.

Winter Parking Advisory

Please help us keep Town streets free of ice and snow by ensuring your vehicle is parked off-street during winter storm and snow removal operations. The Public Works Department can do the job more efficiently if your vehicles are not left on the street during this time.  Please arrange off-street parking locations during snow clearing and salting operations. The Town of Lunenburg operates several parking lots where overnight (5:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m.) parking is permitted for a fee ($35.65 /month HST included).  Parking passes may be purchased at the Lunenburg Town Hall, 119 Cumberland Street (902-634-4410). 

In the Town of Lunenburg the RCMP enforce the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act winter parking ban 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 interferes with or obstructing snow removal or winter maintenance; and
  3. Provides that the cost of moving or towing motor vehicle can be recovered from the owner.   

The cooperation of all drivers is greatly appreciated. For more information, please contact the Public Works Department at 902-634-8992, or on our website here.
