Since it’s inception in 1979, the Downtown Truro Partnership has grown to encompass an expanded mandate and responsibility for an expanded physical area – the Urban Regional Core (URC). Originally named the Truro Development Corporation Limited, the DTP has represented the interests of the downtown business community and has evolved into the driving force behind many of the downtown development and promotional initiatives that take place throughout the year.

Public input sought on conceptual plan for Truro’s Civic Square Truro, N.S. November 7, 2015: A public meeting will be held Thursday, Dec. 10, 2015 to get residents’ input into how Downtown Truro’s Civic Square could be redeveloped and enhanced after the existing library is torn down in 2016. When the new library opens up and the old library comes down, we will have an opportunity to create a public gathering space that will serve as the focal point of our community,” says Jason Fox, Director of Planning and Development for the Town of Truro. Truro area residents are invited to participate in planning and designing a conceptual plan for Civic Square. “It’s important that everyone get involved in the design of this space and that we all have a say in making this space the best that it can be,” says Fox. He says Truro’s mayor and council envision a place which can host many kinds of activities, a place where residents can gather, and a place where they can relax and connect with friends. Debbie Elliott, executive director of the Downtown Truro Partnership, says public spaces are a major component in defining a town and a community, to residents and to visitors alike. “That’s why it’s so important to have community input on the design and content of our Civic Square,” Elliott says “We know people have opinions and ideas about what they would like to see in their downtown, and this consultation opportunity offers them the ability to express their views.” The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in the Community Room at the Truro Fire Hall, 165 Victoria St. It is anticipated a new library in the refurbished Old Normal College will open by late spring or early summer, at which time the current library building will be removed. The resulting green space is just shy of one hectare in size, bordered by Prince, Young and Forrester streets, and includes the cenotaph. The tentative timeline is to have this initial public meeting in mid-December to gather input and ideas, and to then have a follow-up meeting in January to present a conceptual plan. The town’s Planning and Development Department hopes to have the property redeveloped by Remembrance Day 2016. The project is a joint venture of the Town of Truro and the Downtown Truro Partnership, and is part of a larger downtown beautification initiative.
