MEDIA RELEASE: New Municipal Complex Process Extended
Municipality of the County of Kings
KINGS COUNTY, NS: Council has decided to extend the Municipal Complex Timeline to ensure sound decision-making.

The County of Kings put forth a New Municipal Complex Timeline on March 15th, 2017 outlining the consultations and workshops that will take place as part of the New Municipal Complex Process. To date Consultations number one and two have been completed along with the first Council Workshop. The final report from these consultations was accepted by Council on April 18th, 2017 and can be viewed on PlaceSpeak at: https://www.placespeak.com/en/topic/5269-new-municipal-complex/#/resources

At the Council Workshop, Council determined that the purpose of the new building is to:

Build an INCLUSIVE & ACCESSIBLE complex that serves our communities in a TAILORED & WELCOMING way. We are guided by being leaders that build communities, in a FUTURE-MINDED way that capitalizes on our assets and is fiscally responsible.

It was also determined that a second workshop should be set up to spend more time on determining a location. This additional workshop has been scheduled for May 3rd. The process as outlined by the Municipal Complex Timeline cannot continue until a location has been agreed upon by Council.

Once a location is selected, Stantec will advise Council of the amount of time needed before the first draft designs can be produced. Upon receipt of this information a media release indicating the new dates for the remainder of the process will be shared.
