Presentation of Bedford Waterfront Master Plan

Bedford residents enjoy a stroll on the new Bedford Harbourwalk during its official opening back in November 2009.

A public meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 16 at 7 p.m. in the Basinview Drive School cafeteria.

Back in June 2009, after years of discussions and public consultations, Bedfordites were presented with three conceptual plans for the Bedford Waterfront during a public meeting.

Developed by Ekistics Planning and Design in Dartmouth, all three plans aim at ensuring the waterfront is “alive” all seasons of the year with multi-use features related to work, living, play and study.

The designs were presented by Rob LeBlanc, a planner with Ekistics. LeBlanc explained how some of the inspiration for the designs came from a public workshop that took place in April 2009.

The area outlined in the three plans encompasses the in-fill lands between the Bedford Highway and Bedford Basin, from the Boutiler Boatyard to the Clearwater Seafoods property.

As stated at, on June 16 Ekistics “will present the draft plan, followed by an opportunity for public questions and comments. The plan culminates from the ideas provided to date to a steering committee, composed of community representatives and property owners within the study area.”
