Private donors have stepped up to support the proposed Chedabucto Lifestyle Complex in Guysborough. At Wednesday night’s regular council meeting for the Municipality of the District of Guysborough Councillor Blair George stated in his report about the Lifestyle Complex that approximately $200,000 had been donated towards the project in the past two weeks. Along with donations in support of the project, the municipality has received over 35 letters of support from local businesses and residents.
This show of support comes fast on the heels of a movement questioning the feasibility of the proposed $11 million project. Several petitions seeking to stop the project from moving forward have been launched across the municipality.
George said the municipality is hoping for a commitment of funds to the project from both the federal and provincial government to be forthcoming. As of yet there has been no announcement or agreement for funding outside of the municipal government in Guysborough.
A call for tenders for the complex has been made and will close on March 3.
