Village of Harvey Rural Transportation Study
The Village of Harvey, in conjunction with Dillon Consulting, is working to better understand the current and future transportation needs of the Village of Harvey and surrounding communities. Together, we’re looking at the role that public transit, ridesharing, or other modes of transportation might have in meeting resident needs.
The findings of this study may be used to apply for Provincial or Federal grants to introduce a new service, or to expand a service which is already working well.
The Advisory Committee for the Harvey Rural Community will host two “Open House/Drop-In sessions” this month.
The purpose of the sessions is to provide information about the transition from the current Local Service District/Village governance model to the “Rural Community” model of governance.
The Council Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, August10th was not held due to Harvey Community Day activities but will be held on Wednesday, August 17th at 7:00pm.

Our summer hanging baskets have all been spoken for!!
Thank you to the volunteer crew who helped rake the beach on Saturday for the Adopt a Highway/Beach clean-up at the Lakeshore. Helping out were representatives from the Harvey Lake Association and the Fredericton Anglers.
They raked, shoveled and lugged for roughly 2 hours while fighting off the black flies. Their participation was greatly appreciated!
