Vision and Objectives Bedford – Wentworth
A safe and welcoming community.
A new and larger Library to enable additional programs and initiatives.
The launch of Bus Rapid Transit and more transit routes in our community.
The launch of Ferry Service to Mill Cove and to the bottom of Larry Uteck Blvd.
The construction of our first Transit Terminal and Park & Ride facility.
The expansion of Sandy Lake Park.
The expansion of DeWolf Park into the Bedford Waterfront “infilled area”, along with a Library and a Ferry Terminal on our new waterfront.
More tennis and basketball facilities in our parks, school grounds, and playgrounds.
An all-year and fenced off-leash dog park in our District.
A splash pad and skateboard park in, or very close to, our District.
More speed and traffic calmed residential streets in our District.
In the longer term, and in response to the approved Facilities Master Plan and the approved HRM Aquatic Strategy, our District will require a pool. I will work to source opportunities to partner with others to bring an indoor pool to our District. These approved plans listed above recognized that it will be required in the future, due to our projected growth.
