THE TOWN OF CARBONEAR INITIATES A RECREATION MASTER PLAN

Carbonear, NL, November 16, 2022 – The Town of Carbonear has retained the services of Tract Consulting Inc. to prepare a Recreation Master Plan that will inform future planning, investment and development of recreation activities and facilities in the town. The Plan will enable Council to continue to offer residents a diverse range of recreational opportunities, ensuring a high quality of life for Carbonear residents.

A significant component of this plan will include consultation with residents, user groups and other stakeholders to create a Master Plan that is financially viable, relevant, comprehensive, and inclusive for all members of the community. The plan will include a review of existing programs and infrastructure and identify trends and opportunities that are specific to our community. It will consider the need for increased opportunities for leisure and wellness activities for all ages.

“We are pleased to announce the commencement of the Recreation Master Plan” says Mayor Frank Butt. “The Master Plan will ensure the Town continues to be a place where people want to live and play. It will enable the Town to build upon its many attributes and strengths, and to realize opportunities for the long-term provision of services and facilities that meet the needs of all residents. We look forward to engaging residents and stakeholders in the development of a plan tailored to the needs of our growing community.”

The new Recreation Master Plan will be completed in 2023.

Queen Elizabeth II passed away this afternoon at Balmoral Castle in Scotland at the age of 96.
For many, Queen Elizabeth II has been the only Monarch we have known. Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-reigning British Monarch and the longest-serving female head of state in history.
We reflect on her passing and her decades of dedication and service in her unprecedented 70 year reign as Monarch of the Commonwealth.

Bulk Waste Collection Days:

Bulk Waste Curbside Collection Days

Bulk waste collection begins on the designated day for your area. It may take a number of days for all bulk waste items to be removed from all residences. For example, furniture may be collected one day and metals on the next day.

September 19, 2022: Carbonear (east of, & including, Bemisters Hill)

October 3, 2022: Carbonear (west of Bemisters Hill to Pondside Road & sideroads off Pondside Road)

October 17, 2022: Carbonear (south of, & including, Forest Road, London Road)

Bulk collection Guidelines:

  • Place items at your own curb by 7 a.m. on your designated bulk waste collection day. Only your household’s items should be at the curb.
  • Place bulk items next to your garbage box or where waste is normally placed for weekly collection.
  • Separate metal items from other bulk waste (such as furniture).
  • Do not stack items.
  • Waste must be accessible and boxes free of snow / debris
  • All items must be bagged or bundled and tied. Scattered or loose items will not be collected.

Civic Numbers on Residential Properties

Civic Numbers on Residential Properties
The Carbonear Fire Department has noticed that many properties are lacking clear and visible house numbers. Firefighters, law enforcement and paramedics will find you faster when your home is properly marked.
The Town of Carbonear Civic Numbering Policy can be found here:  https://carbonear.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Civic-Numbering-Policy.pdf

Points to remember:

  • Use civic numbers with a contrasting background, so they will be visible.
  • Civic numbers need to be at least 4 inches in height and visible under lighting at night
  • The bottom of the civic numbers should be a minimum of 48 inches above grade
  • The civic numbers should be displayed on the side of the building that faces towards the street upon which the street is addressed
  • Be sure to keep the civic numbers visible by trimming trees and bushes.

It’s another beautiful day!
