Happy New Year! The Friends of Cabot Head have encouraging news to report!
The Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has advised the Friends of Cabot Head that site work at the lighthouse will begin on or about January 14, 2019 with a completion date of June 21, 2019, prior to the July and August tourist season. The project is being overseen by Public Services and Procurement Canada.
Planned activities include lead and mercury containing paint abatement, asbestos abatement, soil remediation and site restoration. These actions are precautionary in nature and will result in a tourist destination that will be both safe and beautiful. During the remediation work, the site will continue to be closed to the public.
The Board of the Friends of Cabot Head is excited to see the start of this important project and we look forward to reopening the Cabot Head Lighthouse in 2019!
We need new members and would love to hear from you!
