Leveraging Community Assets – A Shared Vision and Good Stewardship
Th’YARC (Yarmouth Arts Regional Council) and the Municipality of the District of Yarmouth share a vision for the future use of the former Arcadia School. Rural communities experience revitalization when well-equipped assets are fully utilized– the transformation of a building from a school to a multi-use play house, creative labs and cultural centre in a growing community is a great example.
Warden Leland Anthony echo’s Mr. Bonnar’s statement, adding, “The Municipality is pleased to work with Th’YARC. The decision of Council to sell the divested school building to the Yarmouth Arts Regional Council is a responsible stewardship decision with significant cultural benefits.”
