Message from the Mayor

27 March, 2024


Hello Rothesay residents,

Happy Spring 2024! In some ways it was the “winter that wasn’t”, huge thanks to our Recreation Staff for hosting so many activities for Fundy Winterfest, even without snow! But even with the warm winter, it’s nice to feel the spring sun, and see plants beginning to come up in the gardens.

The Town is preparing for summer activities, and student employees are an important part of those activities. Applications are now being accepted for summer employment; the deadline for applications is April 1.  Looking forward to seeing our students return!

Our Playground Programs remain popular, and we are preparing for this year’s programs at the usual three sites: Rothesay Park, KPark School, and Wells Recreation Park. A new feature at Wells is the recently opened Community Centre, which will provide washrooms for participants, as well as indoor space for rainy days.

Rothesay will be recognizing worthy Volunteers in our community this year. We encourage the public to nominate deserving individuals. Nominations can be submitted online or by hard copy at Town Hall. The deadline is April 5; the Recognition Ceremony will take place on May 1.

Transportation remains an issue in all parts of the Region. A new volunteer-based community transportation program, Urban/Rural Rides, is now available in all municipalities, to offer Residents transportation to essential appointments and services. Administration of this program is funded, and carried out, by the provincial Economic and Social Inclusion Corporation; however, volunteer drivers are required for the service. This is a wonderful opportunity to interact with your community, while helping to improve the transportation situation in the Valley. If you are able, please consider becoming a Volunteer Driver – visit their website here.

Finally, work is expected to resume at the Clark Road / Gondola Point Road intersection in late April. There will be paving, signal installation, and landscaping. Lengthy closures are not anticipated.

Let’s all get outside and enjoy the longer days of Spring!

Dr. Nancy Grant
Mayor of Rothesay
