New Municipal Administration Building
Municipality Awards Construction of New Municipal Services Building
At a Special Council Meeting on Monday, September 13, 2021, Council awarded Tender MDS2021-004, Shelburne Municipal Building to Rikjak Construction to build a new Municipal Services Building in the Municipality of the District of Shelburne
The total budgeted costs for the building is $7.3 million. Council will use a combination of reserves, gas tax, grant funding and borrowing to pay for the building. In 2017, Council purchased 35 acres of land across from the Shelburne Regional High School to secure property for this major project and other future strategic developments. The new municipal building was designed to be more energy efficient, with an energy use that is 30% less than National Building Code requirements and will include solar panels to help reach a higher level of efficiency.
The public are invited to a public information session being held by the Municipality at the Shelburne Regional High School on Monday, September 27th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to review the design, anticipated timelines and costs of the building.
