Yarmouth waterfront getting upgrades with federal money

YARMOUTH, N.S. - The federal government is spending $375,000 to upgrade the waterfront in Yarmouth, N.S.

The funds will be used to improve the waterfront’s entertainment venue and some side streets.

As well, new heritage murals will be painted and a feasibility study will look at setting up a new market.

The improvement project, led by the Yarmouth Waterfront Development Corp., will also see improvements to Wi-Fi infrastructure and website development.

Greg Kerr, Tory MP for West Nova, made the announcement Thursday.

The money comes from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency.
