Cove Commons project gets underway!
Site preparation for the Cove Commons in Snug Cove has begun! Construction of the 2,800 square foot shared community space will soon follow. It's all very exciting and due to the support of donors, supporters and funding from the Government of Canada Cultural Spaces program having raised more than $950,000 for the project. Construction is expected to take approximately six - eight months to complete. Fundraising for the development of the outdoor plaza and green building technologies continues.
