The Government of Canada is investing $292,780 in seven Nova Scotia communities through the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP), delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). As Canada moves toward a strong recovery, these projects will help communities make data-driven decisions about key infrastructure and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.
With funding from MAMP:
- The Town of Westville will create asset management strategies, roadmaps, and asset-specific asset management plans for the existing storm sewer system, street network, sidewalks and curbs that it owns and maintains.
- The Town of Middleton will complete an inventory of the town’s major assets including linear assets, buildings and structures, and fleet. The town will prepare State of Infrastructure reports summarizing and presenting the information in a clear format. A risk assessment process to support a preliminary capital program for the town will help prioritize renewal and replacement projects.
- The Town of Oxford will conclude an inventory of the town’s major assets including linear assets, buildings and structures, and fleet. The inventory will include attribute data such as age, condition, and material. The information will be set up in spreadsheet format as well as with a Geographic Information System (GIS).
“Smart investments in infrastructure help communities in Nova Scotia grow, strengthen their economies and improve the quality of life for their residents. Through projects like this, we’re helping to ensure that communities have the tools they need to plan for the long-term.” The Honourable Sean Fraser, Member of Parliament for Central Nova and Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship
