Like many other northern New Brunswick cities and towns, the administration and council in Dalhousie are shifting their focus to tourism …. As for its main attractions for tourists, Pelletier cited the Bay of Chaleur, the continuation of the Appalachian mountain range, visible across the bay in Quebec, and the Restigouche River. A plan is in the works to renovate the marina and waterfront this summer….”
Dalhousie Mayor willing to give land away to drive Tourism Business in the area.
“We have a lot of vacant land in our municipality that’s sitting idle and doing nothing,” said Mayor Normand Pelletier.
“So we decided to put them up for anybody who’s interested — an entrepreneur or business.”We’ll give ’em the property.”
The town has 20 parcels of land sitting vacant. Some properties are zoned commercial, and some are zoned for residential subdivisions.
The value of the land varies from $20,000 to $50,000 and each property will have certain conditions attached to assure some benefit to the town. So far, two entrepreneurs have approached the mayor, who says the properties, which are scattered around the small town, will be discussed on a case-by-case basis.
