Unsightly Property

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but in the case of some properties deemed unsightly, it's the definition that needs to be clarified. Council for the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg is putting forth a resolution asking for a review of that section of the Municipal Government Act. Mayor Don Downe says they're seeking a revised definition of dangerous and unsightly premises that does not restrict normal and/or usual rural activities such as piles of wood shavings or sawdust. The Municipality is sponsoring the resolution at the fall conference of the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities.
