On September 29, 2021, Cherry Lane is going to become a one-way street.
Traffic will enter Cherry Lane from Main Street (across from 466 Main Street) and exit at the intersection of Parish and Orchard Streets.
This change is a recommendation from the 2020 Transportation Plan Report to improve safety for residents and motorists. Local emergency services have been advised of the upcoming change and we are looking forward to this being a positive change for Mahone Bay.

What do you do when you see something that worries you as a threat to life and/or property in Mahone Bay?
If it is an emergency, call 911
If it is not an emergency, call 902-634-8674.
The non-emergency number is routed to the provincial dispatch 24 hours a day, if it is outside of business hours or even if someone in the local detachment can't pick up. If you aren't getting an answer right away, let it ring because that just means that the dispatch office is busy.
RCMP are never far away and we consistently hear that people don't want to call because they don't want to "bother" the RCMP - you're not. Call if you have concerns.
On Tuesday, June 22nd the Town of Mahone Bay hosted a community discussion about what project(s) would help create a better community for cycling in Mahone Bay. To learn more, watch the recorded session.
Please note that the sidewalk in front of the new Nursing Home build will be closed to the public from May 25th to May 28th inclusive. This is a public safety measure and we appreciate your cooperation as we take steps to keep pedestrians safe.
