Welcome to MyoneNS
Municipalities play a critical role in facilitating economic development in the province. They provide basic services that support business activities and homes - water, wastewater, garbage, streets, sidewalks, traffic signals, police, fire and emergency services. They also provide recreation services, libraries, support heritage and culture and land-use planning - services that make a community livable. Is this enough? Is it done in a way that encourages economic development? Are there things we can do better?
The oneNovaScotia report challenge us to do what we can to encourage and support economic development. The report addresses many factors, many outside the realm of influence of local governments. But there are initiatives municipalities can undertake and support.
This website is tailored for municipalities. It is a resource of ideas, experiences and information to assist municipalities in meeting their economic and demographic challenges.
