Message from the Mayor

Over the last number of years, we have seen first-hand the costly impacts of climate change, including: Stormageddon (2020), Hurricane Igor (2010), Hurricane Leslie (2012), Dark NL (2014), in addition to storm surges, wind storms, and other wide-spread power outages. There is no denying that changing weather patterns are affecting our community, infrastructure, homes, and natural spaces.

Conception Bay South is steps away from nature. Our beautiful and scenic town is a popular choice for divers, sailors, and nature enthusiasts. Our town is also home to a network of pristine walking and hiking trails, as well as parks, playgrounds, beaches, and marinas, not to mention incredible ocean views. In other words, Conception Bay South is a nature lover’s paradise. With this being said, creating a strategy to adapt to the anticipated impacts of climate change on our natural environment is more than important, it’s vital.

Our hope is to build a resilient community. We are committed to providing residents an enhanced and secure quality of life, in a prosperous and ecologically sustainable community. As a governing body, whose mission is to lead the way as a bright town with a bright future, we have a pertinent responsibility to anticipate and prepare for potential climate impacts.

Yours truly,
Mayor Terry French
