Information Edge: Volume 6

For more than 5 years now, the Town of Yarmouth has offered a unique way for individuals and families to honour the memory of a loved one. The Community Asset Donation Program allows individuals and organizations to make a general donation of items such as a tree, bench, work of art, or other structure as a way to recognize and honour others through a lasting tribute. The contributions made through this program benefit our beautiful parks, urban forest, green spaces, the natural environment and the community as a whole. Many individuals have found the program to be the ideal way to remember someone special, while also making a valuable contribution toward beautifying our town. If you’re thinking of exploring the program in the same way, please contact Todd Muise, Parks Supervisor for the Town of Yarmouth, by telephone at 902-307-2924, or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Fireworks Restrictions Within the Town of Yarmouth

As you may have heard, Town Council recently approved amendments to the town’s Noise Bylaw to restrict the use of consumer fireworks within the town. It’s not a total ban. The idea is to eliminate the use of fireworks on random days that are not specific holidays or religious holidays. Please note that fireworks are no longer permitted within town limits, except on recognized religious holidays, Canada Day, New Year's Eve, Natal Day, and the Seafest Parade of Lights. Council also approved a change to extend the authority to the CAO to provide a written exemption for other similar events. Changes also require signage to be displayed at retail displays of fireworks, informing consumers of the ban.

You can view the full Noise Bylaw at: www.townofyarmouth.ca/town-hall/by-laws.html
