Government officials admit that a recent government announcement of a combined federal and provincial contribution of over $50,000 in funding towards the creation of Petty Harbour’s first paved parking lot will help assuage the problem of congestion in the coastal community, but will not solve the problem indefinitely.
When Michelle Myrick, who grew up in the Cape Pine Lighthouse and St. Shotts, launched her performance exhibition “Song Series” across Canada, Norway, and the Middle East last summer, she said audiences wanted more.
An application from Ocean Quest is before Petty Harbour-Maddox Cove council for a new 50’ by 80’ culture and event centre at 56-58 Main Road.
The adventure tourism business, which currently owns a location at 56 Main Road, had a previous application for the same address rejected by council on May 22, as council felt the scale of the project was too large and would detract from the character of the community.
There were plenty of somber faces present at the Goulds Recreation Complex this past weekend.
Jessica Powell was a 23-year-old resident of Goulds who was killed in a car accident on Thursday, July 6, 2017. More importantly, she was an avid fan and player of basketball, as well as a proud employee of the Gould Recreation Centre.
On Saturday, Aug. 17, her name was memorialized for generations to come after the outdoor basketball courts in the community were re-named to “Jess’ Court.”
