SHELBURNE. N.S. – The Town of Shelburne has initiated a project to replace the aging King Street Centre with a new accessible community facility that would bring together various services for Shelburne and area families under one roof.

A facilitated public consultation session and drop-in, hosted by Bird & Branch Consulting in association with the Town of Shelburne, will take place on Tuesday, June 26th, 10 am - 11:30 am - Facilitated Session, 11:30 am-1:30 pm - Drop-in Engagement & Surveys. Meeting Room A, Shelburne Community Centre, 63 King Street, Shelburne.

If you miss the morning / lunch-time sessions, there will be drop-in engagement opportunities from 3-5pm at the King Street Centre Boardroom and from 6-8pm during the daycare graduation at Hillcrest Academy.The project is in the very early stages but the town is urging people to get involved and stay tuned to the Town of Shelburne's website and social media for updates and opportunities to share their ideas.

The town is currently also seeking input from the public through an online survey:

The survey is collecting information on whether you have used the centre in the past and if so, for what purpose. It is asking what community needs the public thinks the new building could serve.

People are also being asked for their opinions on the design of the facility, both interior and exterior and what services or activities they envision being housed at the centre.
