Work will proceed in phases through October, and questions or concerns can be directed to the Public Works Department at 902-542-5767, extension 1.In case of emergency, the contractor’s Project Manager, Trevor Campbell, may be reached at 902-698-8552.

Wolfville plans Pooch Party to celebrate dogs

The new event is designed to bring the community together for interactive fun and you don’t need a pooch to participate – you just need a love of dogs.

Community Video Camera Pilot Project

In response to on-going reports of property damage to Town and private property, and in response to on-going nuisance party by-law infractions, the Town of Wolfville is proposing to install targeted video camera systems as part of a two-year pilot project.

Property damage includes the on-going removal of street blades/signs and traffic signs, which pose on-going safety risks to both residents and visitors. Residents have also reported an increase in property damage including damage to cars, theft of patio furniture, business signs and on-going vandalism.

Last summer and fall, as part of the “Good Neighbours Make Great Neighbourhoods Pilot,” messaging displayed in a close to campus neighbourhood established community expectations. This crime prevention through environmental design pilot was not successful and the property damage and calls for enforcement have continued.

The targeted video camera pilot project is the Town’s response to this on-going issue.

Please see the attached document for full details:
