Strategic Plan for Municipality of Barrington

baccaro point lighthouse

Welcome to the Strategic Plan for the Municipality of the District of Barrington. This document is the dynamic blueprint for the growth of our Municipality for the next three years. This plan has been developed through intensive deliberations with Council and staff, feedback from open public meetings on budgeting and branding, and discussions with many stakeholders.

The Municipality of the District of Barrington is in a period of growth and development, as shown by sales of commercial property, commercial capital investment by local business, and the increase in seafood exports. Council and staff of the Municipality know that the time is right to develop a strategy that will help continue this positive growth and development.

This Strategic Plan will be the overarching guide as the Municipality moves forward over the next three years. Major projects and plans should all relate back to the Strategic Plan, and yearly budgets will also be influenced by this plan.

Council and Staff of the Municipality look forward to working with citizens and all other stakeholders to help the Municipality of the District of Barrington continue on the path of positive growth.

News Release - Municipality of Barrington Lobster Sculptures

News Release – April 17, 2018

Municipality of Barrington Lobster Sculptures

Lobster SculptureThe Municipality of Barrington is excited to be moving forward with the next step in the Lobster Sculptures project by having them placed in prominent locations throughout the Municipality.

The Lobster Sculpture Project was a Canada 150 initiative that saw 10 six foot tall fibreglass lobsters painted by local artists. This project has seen a lot of attention to date with hundreds of people coming to see the beautiful art work, and the lobsters have been featured on all media platforms during the South Shore Lobster Crawl event in February.

The next phase of the project will be to have the sculptures installed throughout the Municipality. Once the lobster sculptures are in position there will be a lobster trail that tourists and residents alike will be encouraged to travel to see many parts of our beautiful Municipality.

The planned locations currently include:

Baccaro Lighthouse (pending approval)
Kiack Brook
Municipal Administrative Building
Barrington Municipal Library
Island View Park
Clark's Harbour (pending approval)
The Hawk
Shag Harbour UFO Site

For now, the tenth Lobster will be used in the VIC, and at specific community events.

For more information on the Lobster Sculptures please phone the Municipal Office at 902-637-2015.
