Community Projects

Fundy Discovery Site

The recent acquisition of the former Palliser Restaurant and Motel property has prompted the Municipality of Colchester to explore and develop a comprehensive master plan for the site. We consider the former Palliser site to be a significant location to act as a gateway to the Bay of Fundy to promote the many and varied experiences that the Bay has to offer visitor and resident alike.

Debert

In April 2008, ownership of the Debert Air Industrial Park was transferred to the Municipality. The Park, along with the former military base, are now the responsibility of the Municipality, to promote, market and develop. This is an exciting development for Colchester and supports Council's belief that the community should take responsibility for its economic future.
