PLATFORM - SUSTAINABLE TOURISM 

A balance of socio-cultural, economic, and environmental aspects of tourism. The Municipal Accommodations Tax (MAT) will help contribute to this balance.

  • Complete the NOTL Tourism Strategy document, ensuring sustainability as a major feature

  • Balance tourism’s current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of community residents, visitors, the industry, and the environment.

  • Improve resources for tourists (eg washrooms), funded by the MAT

  • Explore hop-on hop-off shuttle for tourists with parking outside of old Town

  • Implement traffic calming features to curb speeding and loud muffler noise

  • Strengthen By-law enforcement eg noise, littering

  • Examine short term rental density in certain areas and address noise issues

  • Enforce tourist bus routes and designated parking

  • Expand paid parking areas in old Town, allow for special resident parking permits, and increase the number of hours of the NOTL parking permits
