Three municipal leaders gathered in Yarmouth to talk issues.

Mayor Pam Mood, Yarmouth warden John Cunningham and Argyle warden Danny Muise took part in a ‘State of the Region’ panel on Tuesday.

The leaders spoke about the impact of housing, important local infrastructure, tourism and more.

Mayor Mood says it’s about letting the community know what’s going on.

“Things like the Mariners Centre expansion build, building communities. It’s important people know what’s going on the region and are engaged in the process,” said the mayor.

She spoke about many projects coming up, including sewer separation on Vancouver Street, housing developments and the population growth.

Warden Cunningham says it’s important to work together on issues.

“We don’t always agree, but we’re always looking to work together. Things like the Mariners Centre and tourism, we all have similar views. It’s nice to show the community that we’re all working together on their behalf.” said  warden Cunningham.

He also talked about the Yarmouth International Airport, and says a task force is actively searching for funding for improvements.

Warden Muise spoke about the recently approved Wedgeport Wind Farm project, and the importance of green energy initiatives.

He is also looking forward to the World Acadian Congress in the region this summer.

The panel was hosted by the Yarmouth and Area Chamber of Commerce.
