|With the need and desire to revitalize the economic strength of Grand Narrows, the community formed a non-profit organization in March 1993. The Grand Narrows Waterfront Development Society (GNWDS) is a structured organization consisting of a Board of Directors and Executive annually elected by the membership and registered with the Nova Scotia Registry of Joint Stock.|
|Since our inception we have successfully
partnered with varied government departments and agencies, community
organizations, and private and public sector groups to bring about real
growth and investment in the rural area of Grand Narrows. In 1998 in
recognition of our many successes and future goals we compiled a
detailed Strategic Development Plan. After community meetings, 5 major
themes were established. The adopted 3 year plan (1998 – 2000) focused
on these themes and identified associated costs, timelines, and
potential funding partners.
Theme 1 – Employment/Business Development
Theme 2 - Waterfront Development
Theme 3 - General Infrastructure
Theme 4 - Cultural Tourism Development
Theme 5 - Recreation Development
In 2000 an updated 5 year plan (1998 – 2002) was adopted which archived the first 2 years and expanded into the following 3 years.
