MEDIA RELEASE Wolfville Setting the Stage, Kings 2050 Regional Cooperation
Municipality of the County of Kings
KINGS COUNTY, NS: Wolfville’s Town Council has solidified and reaffirmed their commitment to regional cooperation for the greater public interest.

In late June, the Mayors and CAOs of Kings County (Municipality of Kings and Towns of Wolfville, Kentville, and Berwick) met and decided that the next logical step in the Kings 2050 Regional Process would be to have all four municipalities endorse the four Statements of Regional Interest.

The Town of Wolfville adopted the Statements of Regional Interest proposed in the Kings 2050 Regional Approach Report as follows:

1. Settlement: To ensure an effective, efficient, equitable and focused pattern of development that will support planned residential growth in response to the needs of the public.
2. Economic Development: To encourage the development of the Kings regional economy for the benefit of all communities and residents.
3. Municipal Facilities: To ensure the efficient provision of culture, recreation and other facilities required to serve and enhance the lives of all residents in the Kings region.
4. Environmental Protection: To ensure the protection and enhancement of valued features of the natural environment in the Kings region.

Having all Councils (Kings, Wolfville, Kentville and Berwick) endorse the Statements of Regional Interest is the first step to moving forward in the Kings 2050 Regional Process.

QUOTES
“It is clear that there is a mutual intent for collaboration and cooperation among our Municipalities (Towns and County) going forward. Each of our communities is, to a very considerable degree, dependent upon the other and we would each be poorer for not recognizing that fact. Thank-you Wolfville, for being the first to commit to moving forward”. – Mayor Peter Muttart
