Nova Scotia invests in community building upgrades
The Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre in Bridgewater, NS is receiving a $1.8-million renovation to increase its energy efficiency while improving operations.
The initiative will include upgrades to lighting and heating systems, ice plant operations and pool facilities, and the installation of solar energy equipment. The result will be lower greenhouse gas emissions and operating costs, allowing the centre to operate year round and redirect funds back into community services and programs.
Funding for the project comes from the federal government through its Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada infrastructure program, the Government of Nova Scotia, and the centre.
