Community Consulation and Tour of Barton Elementary – May 22, 2018

The Municipality of the District of Digby is seeking community input about the future use options for the former Barton Elementary School.

On Tuesday May 22 from 3 pm – 7 pm there will be an Open House at the property for the community to express their thoughts and wishes regarding options of reuse of the building and grounds.

Municipal councillors and staff will be on hand to answer questions and to listen to any public suggestions. People will be able to
walk and view the premises and tour the interior to see for themselves the interior layout. The open house is the first step towards consultation with the community to assure the facility remains a positive asset for the area.

Please look for further public meetings notices in the future.

The property statistics are as follows:

  • Lot size 8.13 acres
  • Building size 75ft X 53 ft
  • the interior is 3,975 sq feet
  • PID number 30185862
  • Built in 1960
  • Assessed for $309,600

A citizens group has formed and is actively working towards developing a Community Centre  out of this property. Please contact them for more information.
