Tantramar council gave the green light for town staff to move forward on two longstanding requests from community members on Tuesday.

Staff will now start discussions with the provincial government about a land use agreement for the Trans Canada Trail within town boundaries, and also start to pursue additional funding for a pedway to re-connect the trail where it is bisected by the highway.

In addition, council asked staff to form a committee with local groups to work on planning and funding a new multipurpose facility that could serve as a permanent home for the Sackville Farmers’ Market.

CHMA listened in to the discussion on Tuesday, and spoke with Councillor Josh Goguen after the meeting.
