Climate change has arrived

Dear Timberlea-Prospect Residents,

The heartbreaking effects of climate change have arrived in Nova Scotia.

I would like to express my condolences to the family, friends, and communities who lost a loved one due to the flooding event. The people of our province mourn your loss and are saddened by the devastating news that four young lives were cut short.

Sadly, events caused by global warming and climate change have caused Fiona, fires, and floods in our own backyard.

I am concerned for the residents in our community who have suffered from the recent flooding and have been working with Public Works to repair critical infrastructure and assist residents with disaster assistance relief claims.

Community emergency exits needed

I have initiated talks for future capital funding to be considered for possible emergency exits. Strategic planning to prepare for emergency evacuation for the Prospect communities from Goodwood to West Dover will take place with Public Works and the Joint Regional Transportation Agency.

Residents living in Prospect communities are encouraged to participate in the engagement plan hosted by the JRTA so the planners are aware of the concerns and challenges commuters experience travelling on the Prospect Road.

Beechville Days 40th Anniversary celebration was last week.

This year kicked off with a Beechville Emancipation Day Walk around Munroe subdivision. Special thanks to the Walkettes for showing us the way!

I was honoured to participate in opening night and viewing the heritage presentation and exhibition.

Some other activities that were enjoyed throughout the week were a paint night, movie night, community baseball game, and a fireworks display.
