Along with our local neighbourhood associations, Yarmouth is being transformed by a range of neighbourhood programs spurred by the Town and the province. Housing Nova Scotia's Neighbourhood Improvement Initiative is already revitalizing our community with special grants to landlords and homeowners for exterior, street-facing improvements. Learn more on their website, as this is one opportunity you don't want to miss!
Here are some other key programs that are helping to improve our neighbourhoods:
- Communities in Bloom (join our local committee for initiatives like Adopt-a-Block!)
- All Hands on Deck (no longer active, but its effects are still being felt!)
- Yarmouth Volunteer Network
- Heritage properties
- Downtown Facade Improvement Program
You can find more community groups and organizations in our Community Directory, or find other local initatives on our Neighbourhood Associations page. If you want to make a donation to the Town, check out our Community Asset Donation Program. Contributions made through this program also benefit the parks, urban forest, greenspaces, the natural environment and the community as a whole.
